Getting Started (Start Here!)

If you are just getting started, the most important things to know:

The course web has a lot of stuff on it. It is organized for reference while the class is operating, not necessarily to give you a linear sequence of things to read when you are first getting started.


  1. Read through the important parts of this class web (above).
  2. Understand the Communications policy, and have a sense of the other Policies.
  3. Understand the Parts of Class and the weekly The Weekly Rhythm, although the first week is non-standard.
  4. Be set up with the Requirements, which includes art supplies.
  5. Be ready to attend the Class Meetings (Lectures).
  6. Set up your Canvas profile and notifications notifications. See Tips on Using Canvas

Because class starts on Wednesday, the first week will not follow the usual patterns.
