DH Seminar – The Art Assignment

Hi Everyone,

Tomorrow in LIS9372 I will be leading a Seminar on the Art Assignment! I am so excited to share this fantastic Youtube channel with you all and to actually attempt an Art Assignment. My seminar won’t require you to do any extra readings (I know you’re all super busy this late in the semester), however, there are a few links that I would like you to check out if you get a chance.

It would be great if you could all glance over these resources before Thursday’s class so you know what to expect for the seminar. I have also included all of the references used in my presentation below.

I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!
