We are now in week 5 of term 1 of my course.
The whole thing is 4 terms, in 2 semesters, with 2 weeks holidays between term 1 & 2 and 3 weeks holiday between the 2 semester. Each term is 8 weeks and this time I have my 2 week break at the same time as the kids have theirs. Later in the year, not so much.
On Monday we have Design. There are too many of use for the Mac labs so they split us in two groups, Graphic Design and Fashion Design. Unsurprisingly I picked Fashion Design.
On Tuesday we have what they call ‘Intermedia’. We made a soft cover journal and learned how to do drypoint (scratches on plastic that is then inked and put onto paper in a press). We had to do a playing card from Game of Thrones as a practice and the main assignment is to Photoshop ourselves into a (A3) scene from LoTR or GoT or Vikings or Outlander, then drypoint and print.
On Wednesday we have drawing and have become rather acquainted with the class skeleton, Flexi Fred.
On Thursday we have Art History and as part of that class we went for an overnight trip to the local Marae where we did some scrimshaw (inked etchings on bone) and visited a carved church.
On Friday I spend the day with my wife. ^_^
Here some pics of my work so far! Continue reading
