You can earn college credit for Paint Your Way Through Art History at a great price.
Dual Enrollment with Bryan College is open to high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors. High school sophomores must have a high school GPA of 3.5 or higher and are limited to one 3 credit course in the fall and one 3 credit course in the spring. High school juniors and seniors must have a 3.0 high school GPA. Junior and senior dual enrolled students are limited to 12 semester hours (at Bryan College) during the regular fall and spring semesters.
You enroll as both a Delightful Art Co. student and a Bryan College students. You would receive 2 credit hours per semester listed as:
FA 101 - Exploring Art History I REGISTRATION CLOSED
(you may register for second semester in December even if you haven't done FA 101)
FA 102 - Exploring Art History II
Each semester is handled separately. You can do one or both. You do not have to do the fall semester first.
Dual enrolled students turn in a video or link to a website that shows all their work by the deadline set by Bryan College. Work is graded by Courtney Sanford and submitted to Bryan College. You would receive a transcript from Bryan College showing 2 Fine Arts credit hours per semester.
Normally, Art History students don't turn in their work for grades, but you will need to turn it in to be graded for the credit. Work must be turned in by the deadline for credit. So, this does require the student to complete assignments on time. Which does make the class more challenging.
How it works:
1. Enroll in any session of Paint Your Way Through Art History.
2. You'll then pay the Dual Enrollment Fee of $150 per semester at www.delightfulartco.com/shop
3. You'll be given a link to enroll with Bryan College.
4. At the end of the semester, you'll create a video or a portfolio website where you will show your work and describe it.
Note: Bryan College is an accredited college, so the credit should be transferrable to any college or university, but it is up to that college whether and how the credits will transfer. Each state has authorizing bodies which set the laws for how their residents can (or can't) participate in out-of-state educational programs. We currently are not authorized to offer dual enrollment to students who live in California.
Payment will be made to Delightful Art Co. through the online shop before the semester begins.
HOW IS THEIR ART GRADED?
For the fine arts dual enrollment, they will make a video or use a free portfolio website to show me their artwork. That will be due the last week of class. (I’ll give them lots of info and guidance on how to do it.)
Their art work will be graded based on the percent complete. So if they have 90% of the assignments complete, they’d get a 90. I then give extra points if I see that they’ve gone beyond expectations in any way: getting creative, putting in extra time, or showing improvement.
Dual enrolled students will need to complete each project as they go. I really encourage them to finish one before the next class…so if they can plan an extra art session during the week, they’ll be fine. (If they put one off and catch up later, it’s not a big deal, but if they put them all off, that will be too much to do the night before the portfolio is due.) Students who don’t do dual enrollment aren’t under any pressure to finish…they sometimes finish some projects over Christmas break.
