here is my dilemma, i need to take *Contemporary Art History* for my major + the only open class i could find was at the Biscayne Bay campus, but all of my other classes are at the University Park campus.. this class doesn't conflict with any of my other class times, but i do have other classes on the day that it is being held.. i'm worried it'll be a stupid idea for me to take a morning class at one campus, then take a night class at another campus, on the same day.. any tips or suggestions on driving to + from campus?! the traffic in Miami is INSANE!! i will be living in Coral Gables, btw..

here is my schedule, any honest advice/comments on teachers/professors i have would be highly appreciated
-or- if you have taken any of the classes before + can offer any insight into them!!

Mondays + Wednesdays, Contemporary Art History, 9:30 am - 10:45 am
- Guernsey, Daniel R
Monday, Educational Psychology, 5:00 pm - 7:40 pm
- Ryan, Colleen
Wednesday, General Instructor's Decisions, 5:00 pm - 7:40 pm
- Woods, S Lee L

Tuesdays + Thursdays, Ceramics 3, 9:30AM - 12:15PM
- Burke, William J
Tuesdays + Thursdays, Jewelry & Metalwork I, 2:00PM - 4:45PM
- Shankey, Maureen Patricia

anyone selling the textbook, "Educational Psychology" by Jeanne Ellis Ormrod?!

and how can i pay for my classes online
+ is there any other way to pay online, other than credit-card,
because it is simply ridiculous that FIU doesn't take VISA!!

sorry if these are stupid questions, but i honestly don't know
& many thanx to all that helped me the last time!!

Is it possible to take Visual Thinking II, before taking Visual Thinking I? Ya know...in reverse order? I have a job and the times for visual thinking II are better for me than visual thinking I.

hi there!!

my name is EJ & i'm new to FIU.. i'm an Art Education major with an emphasis in Ceramics, but i'm also a transfer student so i'm super confused as to what classes i need to take, what classes i am lacking, how my classes from my other school have transferred.. i attended Orientation last Friday, but instead of helping me out, it only made me all the more confused!! hopefully the way to resolve this is to see a advisor, right?! forgive me if this sounds stupid, but all i have to do is call up the office + make an appointment + then they'll help me out, right?! all this confusion about classes is making me majorly stressed!!

also, if anyone has taken Ceramics at the University Park campus, which professor did you have + did you like them + why or why not!! also any other suggestions on great professors would be appreciated!!

~*best wishes*~

» Stressed out over classes
I have figured after too long being in the advertising major and I like art way more. I am so behind it's not even funny.

I need to get advised, but I don't know where. I have so many questions......At the look of my paper with the classes, I am so behind. Upper division level art history classes...they do they also count as art/art history elective?!?! Can I use printmaking in more than one place? Meaning...Can I use printmaking in elective in studio art AND art/art history electives??!? Please give info...phone number to art history department would be appreciated. Thank you in advance and sorry for me being so irresponsible.

» My understanding of modern art
I took a modern art class and I have to say after studying it....I understand those art pieces much better. First, you think of an idea or issue you want to work with. Write shit out...sketch and deeply think about it til it's crystal clear. And then you figure out a way to "visually" express your idea. Even, that is what my current art teachers require me to do.

Now, do I agree with that...Not really. Anything against it...No. I believe people have different ways of expressing themselves or WHAT they want to express. Be an idea or emotion. I think art sometimes can't be so thought out to the point where it is unenjoyable.

So, to FULLY enjoy modern art..You first need to know the IDEAS behind the work. There is more to those art pieces than simply LOOKING at them. You have to study the artist's ideas and intentions behind that piece.

BFA FALL 2004 Wednesdays After Hours
BFA Graduates talk about their work.

If you haven't been to a BFA show, get out to one. They're way more important than you might think and there is some terrific work happening at them. It's also a great place to meet up with a lot of other students in the program.

Food for thought: the people who attend all of these things religiously are the same ones who are making things happen for themselves. Get up on it.

PS. Invite people to join the community and participate!

If you're not going to opening receptions, you may want to reconsider. They're a great place to socialize with other people in the art department, meet the teachers, and network with all the people who are making things happen.
