Conceived, designed, and written by students for students under the leadership of Bonnie Mitchell (Bowling Green State University), a preeminent multimedia designer, Art across Time’s Core Concepts in Art CD-ROM provides valuable review material plus exercises and information in the elements and techniques of art.

Contents:
Elements of Art: Allow your students to interact with the formal elements of art by working through over 70 exercises designed to illustrate line, shape, color, light, dark, and texture.

Art Techniques: Take your students on a tour of a variety of art studios. Art Techniques shows artists at work with a variety of media from bronze pouring, to painting, to video techniques – each illustrated by extensive, narrated video segments.

Chapter Resources: Study resources correlated to each chapter of Art across Time. Both a review and test preparation, students will find key terms, chapter summaries, and self-correcting study quizzes which help them prepare for in-class tests, midterms, and finals. Also included is an exercise on methodologies that details the application of various methods to the same work of art, The Arnolfini Portrait.

Research and the Internet: Introduces students to the research process from idea generation, to organization, to researching on- and off-line, and includes guidelines for incorporating sources for term papers and bibliographies.

Study Skills: Help your students adjust to the rigors of college work. The Study Skills section of the CD-ROM provides practical advice on how to succeed in college.
