As I figure out the timing of projects as we transition from 50 to 90 minute classes I can sense that it may not be uncommon for due dates to change. I assign due dates based on past experience with specific projects, and if a project is new, based on personal experience with that style/type of working method.
Which brings me to Art 1. The good news is that there are some really great drawings coming along for the "final pencil still life." I have decided to move the due date to Wed., though I probably won't change the date in Aeries.
Art 2/3 There are some good things happening, but most of you need to pick up the pace and/or use tutorial. There are a few that have come in for work time outside of class, and it has made a significant difference in your first two pieces of the year - in a very positive way.
Art 4's need to have matboard here this week in order to get their drawing presentation ready. As will some of the other levels, there is some great work, but a couple of you still have a ways to go. Time is really the only issue you are facing, but on the bright side, you'll have plenty of time to devote to study drawings before they are due. The first painting of the year will be due in Oct., approx. half-way through the second grading period.
