Daily Practice Proposals

Your Daily Practice Proposal information is uploaded onto Canvas.  These are due Monday at 1pm, so that your faculty can have sometime to look over them individually. We will be discussing them in more detail in our Wednesday class.

Good homework for a 5-6 hour bus ride back from NYC.

Under the file directory you can find the PPT that Alejandro showed in class on Wednesday if you need extra inspiration.

ALSO if you are going on the NYC trip, please take 3 photos of artworks that you really responded to – aesthetically, conceptually or otherwise. And three that you didn’t like. These should also be uploaded to Canvas by Monday.
