So after Thanksgiving? REVIEWS!

Andy Warhol said that everyone gets their 15 minutes of fame. Next week you will have 15 minutes to share your semester work with a group of faculty— and while you may not be famous for it in the end, you certainly will have the limelight.

All reviews will be held in Cohen Studios. Please show up 15 minutes early to set up your portfolio in the area you are assigned. Take time setting up to present your work in the best possible way. This may mean that you must fix, retouch or cleanup artworks.

Reviews are are important, required of all students, and will not be rescheduled. See other post for your assigned time. Below is listed what faculty would like you to bring from their class.

Faculty: Kathy, Kat
Your best search line drawing, your best smoke drawing (using the side of charcoal to bring up values), your scratchboard and night drawing, and your final 4 drawings.

keep-calm-and-welcome-back-37Hope you all had a nice mid-semester break. Following are some questions and answers to get things going in the right direction as we jump into B Block!

What materials will I need for my B Block art classes?

A Group:
Replenish your art kits.  Especially charcoal, erasers, scissors, x-acto knife/ utility knife + extra blades, glue gun and hot glue sticks A 2-3 inch utility paint brush and several plastic containers the size of a large quart container or a gallon bucket.

B Group:
Replenish your art kits.  Please add 2 glue sticks to the kit (the kind for gluing paper NOT the hot glue sticks for glue guns)  Make sure you have your x-acto knife/ utility knife + extra blades and a pair of scissors. For your STUDIO The Line class (meets Monday) please bring to class: a camera (basic point+shoot digital or camera w/ phone) and your laptop computer (if you have one). You will also need to bring from home your extra-warm coat, sturdy shoes or boots.

Where should I be on Wednesday? You should be in Nevins for your Wednesday morning seminar… which starts at 9am.

Where should I be on Thursday and Friday? You should report to your new B Block classes. For Foundations that means that Group A and Group B simply switch classes. See below:
