It was not my favourite semester ever. I had 5 classes. History of Modern art monday mornings at 8:30am. horrific. most days i stayed in bed. There were pod casts. Thank god apple seems to own OCAD, I dunno, I am still trying to fight the mark in that class. I've never been one to contest a mark... but I felt confidant about the mid term, i got 68% on the essay ... so i figured with the what i thought good mid term, and an ok final exam i could get it to 70. I have never gotten anything less than a B which from what I can tell is pretty sweet. And i really wanted to keep it that way. I ended up with a 63% i have no idea how i studied for the exam didnt think I did that bad. I have not seen my midterm or final exam and have in no way found the prof helpful in communicating, soon my mark will be frozen and I am bitter.
Also had an image metaphor class... all the projects were right up my ally, too early in the morning but I was happy with it. Was expecting a bit higher of a mark but shouldn't complain too much.
Had Contemporary Issues. Far too many art critic articles to mean, and a million journal responses, but the studio projects were totally open and i took the chance to do textile work, which was really exciting for me, and over all I actually really liked the class.
Had an into to sociology class. It was fine, completely irrelevant and sort of a joke but the prof was nice and for what it was, it really wasnt that bad.
I also had a processes class where we did metal point drawing, egg tempera paintings -GROSS- i will never paint with egg again its official. also oil glazing and encaustic. The encaustic was frustrating at first super messy but ultimately really awesome, again could have gotten better marks, but I can't complain too much, and there was some pretty deserving work from others in the class, sorta seemed geared towards those who work in abstraction I thought. but... whatevs
This tree print was just for fun, used the tree for the pillow project... you can see the piece if you scroll a couple entries back
