6. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
I really enjoyed leading my own class during the artist presentations. I got to pretend I was a teacher and I was surprised that I did so well. It is nice to take a class at this university that has challenging readings and concepts.
learning about contemporary art, researching and listening to fellow students' presentation about their researching artists
readings, research into artist, class discussion
The writing assignments and research are the most valuable aspects of this course.
The teacher was extremley knowledgable of the subject and truly was able to communicate with students. I feel like I learned a lot from this class, and have a greater understanding of contemporary art.
relaxed atmosphere, good discussion and interesting to hear the grad student opinion on the topics.
All areas especially the readings and writing workshops.

13. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
It was nice to have the first half of the class be readings because during the second half of the semester most students get too busy with other things to focus themselves. Having individual presentations, I was able to learn a lot without overwhelming prep work during my busy days. It is mostly mind-blowing subject matter. I leave most classes feeling intellectually fulfilled.
I love Dr. Hamilton's style and methods for teaching the special project courses, though, I would like them to be taught as studios as well.
excellent! she is enthusiastic and explains the material really well!:)

17. Other comments:
This class changed my outlook on art and who I want to become as an artist. I wish some of my studio teachers took this class so that they may embrace a contemporary mindset. I highly recommend this class to my peers and encourage Ms. Hamilton to teach it again.
These courses are always scheduled in conflict with studio courses. Can they be scheduled at a different time of the day?
Great class, helpful when thinking about places to go with my artwork!
Excellent instructor and content. Learned a lot and will continue researching and developing ideas introduced in this course.
