PROGRESS REPORT - TERM TWO
Block 3 of 4
|Core Drawing for Sculpture, Arran Ross||Because of previous lack of experience, this block has been difficult for Willem. It has been a very steep learning curve. He is an eager and aware student and also articulates what he is learning. The understanding is there but it is not yet materialising in an end result. It is considerable progress though. Especially in relation to the start. Well done for the perseverence.||D = the work is of an ACCEPTABLE standard|
Digital Imaging, Joanna Kane
|Technically very well handled work, well controlled selections, layering and adjustments, and very methodical approach to learning. Exploring interesting ideas around repetition which have potential for future development. Some work perhaps a little constrained by working with Photoshop as an illustrative graphic tool, rather than a more flexible communicative or expressive medium.||B = the work is of a HIGH standard|
|Graphic Design, Zoe Patterson / Colleen Pugh||A quirky, imaginative project with many levels and mediums. Use of materials was funny yet well thought through. Willem set a high standard for himself, was engaging in class and a pleasure to teach. Well done.||B = the work is of a HIGH standard|
Tapestry, Loren Slater
|During this project, Willem produced work that showed a high level of artistic development over the 5 days. He is committed and has a good level of creativity. He produced a very successful site-specific piece that was well made, interesting and well presented. He demonstrated excellent making skills and a high level of understanding of the subject.||A = the work is of an EXCELLENT standard|
|Sculpture, Paul Carter||Showed a high level of commitment during the construction project and produced an interesting and well-executed sculpture. The choice to 'play out' an act of protection between a number of sculptures led to a positive quality of object-base performance which was inherently dynamic, especially due to the kinetic nature of many of the individual elements. The mixed-media elements were well chosen and well used with attention paid to their qualities, both aesthetic and functional. The final sculpture was 'alive' in a number of ways and the level of humanity was evident through the fact that it 'died' when the power ran out. Very good work.||B = the work is of a HIGH standard|
In addition I have had to hand-in my Choice-sheet of which two subjects I would like to study in the Second Year. It will be either (1) Film & TV or (2) Graphic Design for me. Animation has fallen back to (3)rd choice, as I found out it is very individualistic, less of a team activity.
My choice, King first, Queen second
Chances are I do NOT get into either of them, because of the vast number of students that apply and the limited number of available seats.
Then.... I would have to steer towards another College or University. Likely candidates are Glasgow School of Art or University of Dundee.
