Assignment 1: Reflection

I received my feedback from Drawing 1 Assessment (OCA Assessment Team, 2019) and Sculpture 1 Assignment 1 (Thompson, 2019) at about the same time.

In some ways this worked as an approach, in others it became a little too much of a marathon of research and not doing. Almost universally there were some sculptures for each artist that caught my interest for one reason or another. I also started to observe commonalities and differences in the works which started to be interesting in and of itself. The different artists, and my consideration of them, is documented on the Art and Artists page and its sub-pages.
