Week 5 - Oct. 12

MA #1 Critique 

Idea 2

Welcome to Week 5! In Module 4, "Perspective Drawing" we experimented with technical drafting and learned about the technique of different forms of perspective. We also dove into a bit more detail about the critique process before embarking on our first pseudo-critique forum post where we gave feedback on the plan instead of the final product. MA1 has been submitted and we are now ready for our first major assignment crit of actual artwork in module 5.


If you are still feeling unsure about the critique process, its purpose, or even just curious about what it looks like in a normal classroom environment, you can learn a lot from this week's resource: "Art Professors Explain How to Critique Art" in the module tasks. Make sure that the feedback you offer in the forum for MA1 is of high quality.

I promised you a bit of a break in Module 5 to respond to the poll results that showed some found they were sometimes struggling. So, I will absorb the exercise this week (E5) to give you some time to catch up, take a break, or work towards MA2.
