During the past 20 years I have designed quite a few humanities courses for the University of North Dakota, beginning when I was a graduate student. Currently I teach semester courses as well as Professional Development  (PDE) courses for Continuing Education credits. The PDE courses are currently being updated so that they are not tied to semesters but can be taken at any time during the year.

If you are interested in finding out more information about the courses, the schedules, and registering for a course follow the link below. It will take you directly to the university.

  1. Hello…hope this question is ok here, forgive me if it is not… I noticed the comment that artistry will not be graded, only your ability to fulfill the assignment for ART 110…is the same true for ART 120? I am considering ART 120 or FA 150 and have a concern with my ability to draw hindering my success in 120.

    • Hi, Ken – Thanks for your interest in the courses. The ART 120 course is a bit different from ART 110 because it is a drawing course rather than an art appreciation course. However, ART 120 is a beginning level art course so the expectations are for that level of skill and improvement. If you are concerned about being able to get an “A” in the drawing course, you can take the FA 150 course instead. I look forward to seeing you in class! ~Karen
