You have been a thoughtful student and have demonstrated to me that you have the ability undertake a degree level piece of academic research. Your drawing skills have developed but I think embarking on the degree will really speed that up and help you to commit more time to drawing. Importantly, your understanding of art and its possibilities for you as a maker has really developed. In particular, there is plenty of scope for you to continue to ask questions of drawing as it relates to sculptural practices. Best of luck with your future studies.

Feedback, written up by myself based on a video session…
Overall, this part represents good assignment submission, where you have clearly enjoyed yourself and improved you observational drawing.

I am also quite “process oriented” in how I do things.
Bringing this back to the feedback I’m struggling with, it is this from Assignment 1:
Provide evidence of research, discernment, self-evaluation and contextual study in your logbook

Received feedback for Assignment 2 from my tutor.
Thank you for your second Assignment
Thank you for taking my advice and keeping to the requirements of the course so that you have submitted only some evidence of the projects as instructed in the coursebook. Continue reading “Assignment 2 feedback”
There is so much in the feedback I received from my tutor I’ve started to turn it in to a slightly simpler list of “things to do”: Continue reading “Assignment 1 Feedback Action”
