Reminder from Barbara, John, and Kevin

Attention all “A group” students currently studying with John Gill, Barbara Lattanzi, and Kevin Wixted!!

Do check the crit schedule and portfolio checklist.

Here is your reminder of where to find that information…

What time are you scheduled?

The scheduled time for your individual critique is on a flyer posted in our Foundations studio space (taped to the window).  

If you have not yet done so, do find your name on that list.  Write down your scheduled set-up time (20 minutes before your actual critique).

Crits are with John, Barbara, and Kevin.  And as you already know, these are scheduled on Monday and Tuesday this coming week!

Do not be late.  It is crucial that everyone arrive at their designated time.

What do you bring?

A portfolio checklist is posted next to the schedule.

See you soon!




Checklist for final critique (Group B with instructors: John, Barbara, Kevin)

For your convenience, here is the checklist for students in Group B, those studying with faculty instructors John, Barbara, and Kevin.  This checklist was also posted last week on the walls of the classroom studio.

Projects checklist

You must bring the following projects to your final crit. These, with exception of computer files, must be ready to hang on the walls 20 minutes BEFORE your scheduled critique. (The first group on Monday and the first group on Tuesday should arrive at 7:30AM to put up their work.)
