Textbook Information

Art Appreciation:

The required textbook is aligned with CCV course objectives and coincides with weekly assignments. The textbook provides a comprehensive resource for initial study of new concepts as well as a reference for future research. A hardcopy of the textbook is usually the best option, especially for easy, no tech needs access and accurate color reproduction. However, an eBook version may still be more convenient for some students as an alternative to a new hard copy of the textbook.

The CCV bookstore strives to provide options for direct purchase through their site and is currently offering the 12th Edition in loose leaf form: ISBN 9781260363890. Additionally, many online stores offer economical used and older editions of the textbook in hard copy form. There are also a few lending options I can assist with if needed. Email me for more information. Lynn.Berry@ccv.edu

Whatever version or edition of "Living With Art" by Mark Getlein you acquire, you will have what you need for this course.

How This Course Works

This course runs from Tuesday to Monday, Midnight.

Each week you will read the assigned Chapters and answer the Instructor Posted Questions in the “A” Forum.

• Accurate, comprehensive answers, with reference to additional sources (including texts, links to web pages, and periodicals). In depth answers which go beyond the course textbook.

• Spelling, structure and grammar is correct and sources are properly cited.

• 70 Points can be earned for your answers each week.

• These answers should be posted by Sunday of each week.

The “B” Forum: Student Generated Questions and Responses is where discussion occurs.

• Post one thought question of your own ("student-generated question") to the class each week in this forum. The posting should promote thought not ask for facts. Sincere reflections and relevant comprehensive questions are the best. 15 points can be earned each week for this one question. This student-generated question should be posted no later than Thursday of each week in order to allow time for students to respond.

• Student discussion requires student generated responses posted in the “B” forum on at least 3 occasions. Many students will respond much more than 3 times as this is always appreciated. As the instructor, I will jump in here when appropriate. 15 points can be earned for your responses in the “B” Forum (5 points x 3). Participation on at least several days throughout the week is best.

By Monday night at midnight all responses must be submitted. Any assignments or student generated questions for a given week posted after Monday will not receive credit.

The above schedule helps students stay on track throughout the week. I will be monitoring the discussion daily. Grades for each week (a possible 100 points) will be submitted on Tuesday.

Please plan to be an integral part of the weekly discussion. In addition to the required student generated thought question and 3 responses to student questions, the Discussion forum (Forum B) is a place for you to post any art related notes for others to enjoy. It could be a local exhibit, a film, TV programming or artist web page that others may find interesting.

Mid Term Essays and Final Essays are creative writing format and worth 100 points each.

Attendance Policy

Regular attendance and participation in classes are essential for success in and are completion requirements for courses at CCV. A student's failure to meet attendance requirements as specified in course descriptions will normally result in a non-satisfactory grade.

  • In general, missing more than 20% of a course due to absences, lateness or early departures may jeopardize a student's ability to earn a satisfactory final grade.
  • Attending an on-ground or synchronous course means a student appeared in the live classroom for at least a meaningful portion of a given class meeting. Attending an online course means a student posted a discussion forum response, completed a quiz or attempted some other academically required activity. Simply viewing a course item or module does not count as attendance.
  • Meeting the minimum attendance requirement for a course does not mean a student has satisfied the academic requirements for participation, which require students to go above and beyond simply attending a portion of the class. Faculty members will individually determine what constitutes participation in each course they teach and explain in their course descriptions how participation factors into a student's final grade.

Accessibility Services for Students with Disabilities:


CCV strives to mitigate barriers to course access for students with documented disabilities. To request accommodations, please
  1. Provide disability documentation to the Accessibility Coordinator at your academic center. https://ccv.edu/discover-resources/students-with-disabilities/
  2. Request an appointment to meet with accessibility coordinator to discuss your request and create an accommodation plan.
  3. Once created, students will share the accommodation plan with faculty. Please note, faculty cannot make disability accommodations outside of this process.


Academic Integrity


CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
