This project would not have been possible without the initial support of the Fanshawe College OER Design Studio, funded under the ecampusOntario initiative with the Government of Ontario.

Thank you to professor Dr. Mariam Wifi for your review of my work, and suggestions.

Thank you to copyright service officer Wilson Poulter for all of your work and suggestions with this project, and to Librarian Megan Anderson for all of your help researching Open Source Materials in the study of art History.

Thank you to Fanshawe College’s Associate Dean for the School of Design, Dr. Dana Morningstar for all of your confidence and support. I am greatly appreciative of you and your work.

This project is very much a work in progress, and I will continue to formulate the chapters over the next little while. You will notice I have not published much of a glossary, as this activity is an assigned collaborative semester-long project with my classes. For fall 2022, I am considering posting up our final doc at the end of the semester. If you have suggestions on content or would like to submit ideas please contact me at
