  • G: 1.2Ac: Choose from a range of materials and methods of traditional and contemporary artistic practices to plan works of art and design.
  • A: Photography – Let’s look at the ideas of what makes for a good photograph and how you can use this to create a strong body of work… Today we will be going out into the building to make photographs based on the ELEMENTS and PRINCIPLES. This will continue to through the end of the semester. Your final exam will be a presentation of the portfolio of Element and Principle Photographs and a final series of images that demonstrate your understanding of a strong photograph.
  • G: What did you accomplish today in the time we had for photography? Strong images? How were you able to make the best use of your time? Thinking about the images you created today… how many of the Elements and Principles were you able to document? Able to capture in a unique and original way?

Thanks ahead of time for the hard work and making my time here a  
  • G: day 2 of painting is done… What are your results and what do you need to do to take this home over the weekend to get a good set of work done for the remaining days in the studio?

    1. Thank you. I miss you all too. My time with the kids in Waterford was such an important part of my everyday. You are all wonderful. My Fort kids are awesome too, but my 💓 was in Waterford for 19 years, it’s a hard thing to forget.
