I am giving this class to offer expanded horizons to you as artists and thinkers. This class is designed for your needs specifically. Don't miss out on learning all you can. This content might not be available to you in any other class!

ATTENDING CLASS WIDE AWAKE AND ALERT IS CRUCIAL! MUCH OF THE INFORMATION THAT WILL BE COVERED IN THE EXAMS IS OTHERWISE UNAVAILABLE! YOU ALSO NEED TO SEE PRESENTED MATERIAL YOURSELF SINCE WHAT COUNTS ARE YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS AND INTERPRETATIONS. YOU WILL NOTE THAT I COUNT ATTENDANCE AS 25% OF GRADE - THAT IS BECAUSE I EXPECT YOU TO ATTEND CLASS!

*It is best to let me know in advance if you plan to see me in my office so I know to expect you. If you send e-mail to me, include the course number DMS 219 in the subject line, so I can try to give your message the attention it deserves. Class will be taught with contributions by John Long <iwooh@hotmail.com>.
