Weekly Expectations

Hi Everyone....  Hope you are staying warm and dry...

Just a quick note about weekly expectations as a reminder....

Each week, there is a creative exercise outlined in the syllabus.  My expectations are that you will do the assignment in the spirit of play and creativity and post your favorite 6 or more images to your fotothing account.  In addition, please post your favorite one here on the blog.  By the end of the class, I am expecting to see about 35 images ... of course you may post more... the more the better.  The first one you make is to break the ice and get the process rolling.  There is no one right way to do each assignment... I am looking for your own solutions and creative touch in everything we do.

On top of that, there is a weekly MOCA artist review due for posting on this blog...  Post an image of the artist, a link to their website and a response to their work as well as discuss what the goals and aims of the artist are.

As a reminder, here is what I wrote on the syllabus about academic expectations:

Academic Expectations:
Post work each week, including 1 artist review found at MOCA and 1 or 2 images of your personal work. Put the remainder in your fotothing portfolio. Check into the blog to create a post and leave comments for your classmates at least twice a week, , care about your work, make progress in the medium, help and cooperate with your classmates, take risks, make mistakes. Your grade will be based on a portfolio of 30 pieces due at the end of the session. As this is a workshop class, good attendance is assumed. Care about the quality as well as quantity of your creative work, help and collaborate with others in the class, communicate openly with me…. Do your best. Your portfolio posted to Fotothing will be the tangible evidence of your progress in the medium but your overall contributions will play a role in determining your grade as well. Don't wait until near the end, then run around and try to get your work done in a rush... that's like skipping class all semester.
