WELCOME BACK! Spring 2014 Important Information

Several things will be different in both the structure and the content of Foundations in the spring semester. Firstly I have re-assigned groups. There are 4 groups of approx. 25 students; they are called A, B, C and D Groups. Each group will be engaged in a series of 4 half semester workshop classes called LABs. The LABs continue and expand upon concepts that were introduced in the fall semester.

The first week back from break the whole class will be involved in a group activity you will be engaged in a bookmaking workshop that involves library research and the compilation of images and text. Click here to find a series of worksheets that will help you to gather information and materials for the workshop. We will meet in the Harder Hall studio at 8 am on Tuesday, January 21st please bring a notebook and your completed homework to class that day.

Make a note of the day, time and number location of your final review — all reviews will take place in the Cohen Studio.  Before coming back from break assemble all of the required work and make sure that drawings are finished and clean and that your documentation is done. Remember that we will not be holding classes as usual and that your only responsibility is to show up for your final review during the week of Dec. 2nd.  Please arrange to arrive at the studio 15 mins before your review so that you have time to set up your work and be ready when your review time begins.  Remember, also, that missed reviews will not be rescheduled and that missed reviews will result in a lowering of your final semester grade.

All artwork and materials must be removed (unless you have made prior arrangments with your faculty) from both the Harder Hall and Cohen Studios by 6pm tomorrow evening.  Anything left over will be discarded. Foundations is officially over for the semester at 11:00  am on Thursday December 5th.  Please be aware of the final exam schedules for all of your other academic classes.
