Week thirteen of semester two of year one - four days of classes
Monday Morning – Printmaking
There was one presentation – on Escher – very informative!
I continued with the etching of six little paper-mache cats. I continue experimenting with mixed media over the prints.
Monday Afternoon – Ceramics
In the studio – I continued using coils and began to construct the shell-like part that rests on top of the base. I prepared coils so I can continue to work on this as soon as I get to class. I’d like to have this completed and ready for the first firing next week.
Tuesday – Design
I submitted my gray-scale assignment and handed it in. Our regular teacher was away.
Wednesday – Drawing Fundamentals
I handed in my portrait of a CTS teacher. In class we did a thirty minute contour drawing in ink of a large floral bouquet. Next, we used water colours to complete the drawing.
Thursday – Painting
We have a new setup in painting class – this time it is fabric. I spent the time working on the preliminary sketch and blocking out the composition on my canvas.
Fabric of Vision: Dress and Drapery in Painting –
Discovering Art: Light in Painting (talks about light on fabric)
