  • 10.1P: Document the process of developing ideas from early stages to fully elaborated.
  • These forms may not be your MASTERPIECE of all time, but they did require focus, work, and attention to detail. Looking at ALL the FORMS you created, what do you feel about the ease or difficulty about creating a work of art.

If you are NOT done with the paper mache forms, what could you / should you have done over that past 2 weeks to make sure you DID get them finished by the end of the period? YOU WILL COME TO CLASS TOMORROW with them done.
