For the fall semester (2015), I taught our department's Writing in the Discipline course. It seeks to teach majors in both studio art and art history at the junior level the basics of visual arts writing, but also how to do research in the field. They are taught the basics of visual analysis and also wrote several art exhibition reviews based on the gallery shows that we have in our college art gallery.
But the main assignment was research on a work of art of their choosing that was written in the form of an exhibition entry. The entries spanned the middle ages to the Futurists. Their exhibition can be viewed here.
Another part of this assignment was a wikipedia edit on their work. More will be written about that in a coming post for Wikipedia that I will link here.
