13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
n/a
I really learned alot about art in this course, it opened my eyes to see art in a new way.
This course was fantastic in every way. Tia managed to give us a thorough and detailed overview of so many aspects and levels of art and art appreciation that I was truly amazed. And somehow she did this without overwhelming us. Her instructions were clear and she excelled in giving each student as much personal attention as was needed. She balanced emphasizing key tenets of art with how PERSONAL art work is. Tia was always inspiring us to recognize our own artistic abilities and endeavors.
I enjoyed the person's lab and all the extras in there. I also liked doing the midterm paper. Tia was extremely helpful and always available!
I generally liked the discussions, it sometimes felt like story time but while learning.
The assignments helped me to understand the material that was being covered in each chapter. I liked doing the formative assessments.
Great interactive conversation discussion starters!
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
n/a
The only glitch in this course occurred in the beginning; there was some confusion as to what course number we had enrolled in and who the instructor was supposed to be. However, she quickly straightened it out and made allowances for our confusion.
Class was a little confusing at first as far as how to navigate and what websites to use.
none
Too many interfaces to do work on. Maybe stick to only My Arts Lab.
15. What things did you get from this course that will benefit you personally?

The technical understanding of art in all its forms will serve me in so many ways. The course also gave me a deeper knowledge of the HISTORY of art, its various transitions and its evolution. As an amateur artist, this course was invaluable.

Tia Tamar is simply one of the best, if not THE best teacher I've had the good fortune to learn from while at HCC.
The only thing that was confusing about this course was how to get started. Nothing was on Laulima which didn't bother me at all, it was the instructions on how to use the other websites that was difficult.
Thank you for your time!
