patiently waiting to see......

well, the DMA project now just needs to be installed. the reception date is still not a 100 % set date, but as soon as I know I will post the info.
we are going to do THE MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE event ..... print exchange, exhibition and sale.
we will start on this second semester immediately after finals. so i would start thinking about the messages you each individually want to send. remember it's an important decision, an opportunity to voice a message of meaning tied in with an image created for a cause.
( sounds awesome....)
i know Vaal technological university is participating for sure. i am hoping that brookhaven and uta will also. we are hoping that the elementary artists from the township outside of durban will also partake. the may be looking to us to help them fund their art 13 project which would also be a very worthy charity.
side note...remember all seniors and juniors to sign up for the 3 printmaking workshops November 20th and 21st. if you are planning on staying in the area, brookhaven, uta and university of Dallas have the strongest print programs it seems. twu has a great bookmaking and photo teacher. i believe printmaking professors from these schools will be reviewing portfolios these days also.

this Monday November 10th all students should be working on the plates of their new assignments! ( this is nothing new, i have individually reviewed and conferenced with all of you last week! no excuses!!!! )

2 new requirements for all printmakers beside intro students:
new writing assignment to begin this next 6 weeks. students will be expected to do two written reviews of prints from sites listed on this site. forms will be available in the classroom by the computer, and soon on this site as a download?! and all students will be required to upload their own prints at least once a semester.)
