In order to qualify as a Creative Expressions studio course, it must
1. teach students about the art’s formal elements through exposure to other artists’ work in order to engender appreciation;
2. expose students to artistic criticism and engage them in aesthetic evaluation;
3. teach creative expression as a process, where students re-visit and re-vise (see again) their own work through reflection and responses to critiques;
4. teach students some of the skills and techniques that professionals use to create the kind of art they will be producing;
5. base approximately one-third at minimum of the grade on the students’ presentation of original artistic expression.
