Review:

“Informational and straight-forward.”

    -Jeremy Killian, University of Louisville

 

“Students LOVE technology, and podcasts/videos are their favorite forms from which to glean information.”

    - Sandi Landis, St. Johns River Community College

 

“The "Studio Technique" videos provide valuable, easy-to-understand demonstrations of relevant techniques, helping the artistic process to "come alive" to students and helping them to appreciate the level of technical skill required by a number of artistic mediums.”

    -Frederick Smith, Florida Gateway College

 

“MyArtsLab allows students to immerse themselves in the material. Works of art come alive. The everyday aspects of works often interest students more than the ones their professors emphasize, and MyArtsLab is full of those. Most importantly, it will help nourish a life long love of the arts not only among our strong students but also among our weaker ones.”

    - Paul Beaudoin, Fitchburg State College

 

“The Handbook is a concise, yet complete text that is enhanced with an excellent MyArtsLab component giving students the best of both worlds.”

    - Dr. Joana Owens, Jacksonville University
