Week 10 updates (as of Tues., May 25 / week 9)
10 a.m. (note the early time!) Critique in dedicated studio of the following works:
(1) second iterative self portrait (4 sequential media),
(2) multiple-plate intaglio prints due at final class meeting
(3) independent suite of four works
Please note, this will be a committed, thoughtful critique taking most of the day. As a demonstration of your upper-division capacity for critical thinking about visual work and the concepts they imply, students will be expected to take the lead on these discussions. Remember our pedagogy centers on your thinking and learning, on your informed opinions, and weaning folks from the desire for feedback from authority figures. [smiley emoticon]
9 a.m. Continue critiques and/or begin installing the final program exhibit
1 p.m.: Submit final portfolios in your studio space for review by your evaluating faculty, including:
Final self-evaluation (doesn’t need to be on ‘the form’).
Notebook if substantive
“If your house was burning…” digital compositing assignment
“50/50” self portrait
Original iterative self portrait in its entirety (6 sequential media)
Second iterative self portrait (4 sequential media)
Submit printmaking assignments not submitted at deadline. These may include any of the following:
- Traditional hard ground/aquatint etching
- Photo-intaglio sample assignment (one exposure test impression + one print at selected exposure, label exposures to lumens clearly)
- Photo-intaglio formal composite print (one impression only)
- 5 Chine colles
PS – it’s helpful if you label your portfolios contents to assure that you get full credit for your work. In some cases, it may be difficult for us to discern which work was submitted in response to which assignment.
12 – 4 p.m. TESC Arts Walk
12:00 – 1:30 p.m. (note the new time) Mandatory Printmaking Studio Clean-up
