Discussions play an integral role in monitoring your course participation throughout the term. You should check back to the weekly discussions multiple times throughout the week to engage in the discussion with your professor and peers. Participation is only counted during the week in which this discussion is assigned. Be sure to appropriately cite any sources you use to support your responses with standard APA citations. Answer the prompt question(s) thoroughly using a minimum of 150-200 words and respond to as many of your peers as possible – note that responses to 2 of your peers are required for full credit. Be sure to answer any additional questions asked by your professor in the discussion threads. Your initial post is due by Day 3 of the current week, and follow up posts to your peers are due on Day 7!

You can find visual art anywhere! Vast repositories are online, but you probably have art on your refrigerator door (your child’s artwork) and see it on billboards that you pass on the way to work or on T-shirts with ironic sayings.
This week, find a piece of visual art that you like or that challenges you (“Why is THIS art?” for instance).
Live with it for two whole days. Print out a copy so that you can carry it with you. Study it while you brush your teeth. Look at it before you go to sleep. Reference it often.
At the end of the two days, start by writing a description of the art you chose. For the moment, pretend your readers can’t see or aren’t familiar with your chosen art work. Describe it to us in a strong paragraph that helps us to understand what the art looks like.
Next, write about how your perception of the piece of art changed after intense study. Did this exercise change your idea about art at all? Be sure to include your chosen piece in your discussion board post so that we can compare your description to the actual piece.
In your responses to your peers, ask questions about their art or experience, discuss their written description vs the actual art, talk about your response to their chosen piece, etc.
