Extract from OCA Assessment Team (2019), LEVEL 1 VISUAL ARTS SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENT FEEDBACK [Attachment to Email November 2019 Assessment Results sent to Howard, D. 11/12/2019.] T
I waited a while between the last tutorial to write up my reflection on the feedback. This is partly because I have been very busy, and partly because its was worthy of significant consideration. In approaching Part 5 I was focusing more on my approach to work than on the finished result. I am planning, as discussed, going to create more work using this approach and possibly base much of my on-going work on the approach I’ve developed during this part. Where relevant I will update the cycle write up for the work I complete before submitting for assessment. If the new work is part of the best then I will include it in my assessment submission, and I would hope that there will be at least one piece that does.Continue reading “Reflection on Assignment 5 Feedback”
You set out a clear plan – described as a series of ‘cycles’ – for the creation of several work informed by the work of other artists. As discussed, the submission seems a little thin when compared to – for example – the figure drawing submission last time. You have time to return to the project(s) you have set yourself and flesh them out and explore them more fully.Continue reading “Assignment 5 Feedback”
… As discussed, you have been attending life classes throughout your Drawing One time and some of the work you submitted is over a year old. We mostly spoke about the work made more recently as this benefits from the feedback I’ve given on other work. …Continue reading “Part 4 Feedback”
… You have responded well to the challenge of working things out THROUGH drawing that I set you last time. There’s a palpable sense of you taking control of the work in this submission. You’ve deliberately avoided doing in depth ‘book’ research in order to focus on making. This has worked. Well done. Obviously there’s work to do, but I feel that you have made good progress with this submission and that the work you have made is more ‘you’. Continue reading “Assignment 3 Feedback”
In the following extract I’ve retained the relevant feedback for my development and removed content which seems inappropriate to share. Missing content is denoted with “…”. My initial reflection on the feedback follows it.
In the blog you write about your research method. It would be good to use drawing as the principle research method. When you spend time with a subject and forget about what’s ‘right’ you make some good work. At the moment though, you tend to be hidebound by the discoveries / methods of others. Allow yourself to investigate the media and the subject THROUGH drawing and not through reading about other people’s way of making things. Continue reading “Part 2 Feedback and Reflection”
I’ve been trying to work out how best to approach part 2. To consider the best approach I’ve considered the volume of work, and my thoughts
Volume of work
The following is a list of the Projects, exercises and elements for consideration needed in this part of the course: Continue reading “Part 2 Approach”
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. Continue reading “Assignment 5 feedback session”
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. You have clearly engaged with the part and learned a lot about drawing and the use of negative space. The work shows good progress through the exercises and the sketchbook. Continue reading “Assignment 4 Feedback”
You have learned a lot from using charcoal and developing your use of tone and line in this assignment. Your contextual work isn’t connecting, as you know, but we have discussed this and I feel confident that you are gaining a better understanding of what is required. Continue reading “Assignment 3 feedback”
On consideration I’ve decided that it is appropriate to reflect on my tutor’s feedback again. This is more for my own thinking than as a response. After my Assignment 2 feedback I realised that I hadn’t understood and/or followed some of his advice. Considering each point explicitly at this point seems worthwhile as a completeness check, and to build a “further work” list. Continue reading “Reflection on Tutor feedback”
I have been struggling with the feedback from my tutor, not because of a flaw in it but because all of this “Art Education” is new to me. Having spent most of my career in software engineering and business management I think I have an unusual way (for the art world) of dealing with instructions. 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”
Reading through my feedback there was one bit I didn’t understand, so I wrote to my tutor:
Having been though the feedback, could you provide me with an indication of what you mean by:
“Colour and Tone– …Are you thinking about dynamics and phrasing in your work?”
I’ve not come across this terminology before.
Well, I received feedback from my first assignment, which has given me a lot to think about. For the record I’ll include some parts here… Continue reading “Assignment 1 feedback”
