Please click here to see your review time: Final Fall 2013.

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.

In Preparation for B Block

When you return from break next week make sure to replenish your art kits of materials you have used up during A block.  In addition the faculty have asked that:

A Group bring:
Please see the attached list from Professors Green and Gill’s class
-Magazines, at least 3, they should be magazines that contain text and images.  Ie, Vogue, National Geographic, New Yorker etc..

B Group bring:

-A digital camera ( if you have one) that is not a cell phone
-a pair of good walking shoes.  i.e  hiking boots, rubber boots, etc
-appropriate clothing for being outside for extended periods of time as you will be taking a series of long walks
-large utility brush at least 3 –5 inches wide
-10 plastic cups
-glue stick

When we return from B Block you will be staying in the same groups as you were in during A Block.  The main difference is that you will be switching classes with the other group.  A Group will be taking the Studio:Make class with Professors Green and Gill on Monday and Tuesday while on Thursday and Friday they will be taking the Drawing:Experimentation class with Professors Morgan and Bennett.  B Group will be meeting with Professors To and Vajda for Drawing:Observation on Monday and Tuesday and on Thursday and Friday will be taking the Studio:Research class with Professors Hunter and Hargrave.

When we return from break on Wednesday Oct. 16th we will be meeting in the Cohen Studio at 9 am for an activity presented by the Graphic Design area.

Have a great break!
