So, as of last week when we discussed what you would need if anything changes and you may need to work from home. I have been sent home from college due to being high risk with my lack of immune system. I have put cover in place for all your lessons this week, so no need to panic.
You all have everything you need to get to your exams starting in April, whilst staying safe throughout this virus.
The white board has everything you need written on it to be prepared and ready and you should all have a tick list for this unit in your sketchbook (If not, there is a spare on the whiteboard to photocopy).
At this point in time the exam board aren't changing the deadline dates so we need to do the best we can.
In lesson this week you can send me your edits and I will email you back with guidance and ideas for your mock set. You will also have Dan/Erin in lessons to speak to about your way forward for your mock/final set......try and book the studio in the next few days if you need to take your mock set and final if you want to get ahead!!!.
Otherwise, you could try and set up a mini studio at home with white sheets/walls/paper and lamps.
DON'T PANIC, remember everyone is in the same boat here and these issues are impacting everyone globally.....so, we are not alone and just have to do our best to carry on, whilst keeping safe!
As things have changed.....Unit 1,
I can not be there to offer you twilight sessions to improve unit 1 and complete the post-its and you may have quite a few to do still (esp. if you've been doing fine art twilights for the past 3 weeks).
So, I have asked Dan to let you have access to unit 1 sketchbooks in free periods this week. Please can you work on these (they are upstairs store room) but DO NOT remove from college. The sooner you get these done the better, as we are taking each day at a time!
***If it's locked, Dan (or any other staff member) can open.***
I will be marking these for the final time next week, they are being delivered to my house on Monday...they have to be completed so please get these up to date and add final piece glossy prints A4/A3 in the back (I will mount when they are moderated).
THESE ARE NOW MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER, AS THEY MAY BE USED TO SEE THE STANDARD OF YOUR WORK USUALLY WITHOUT ANY EXTERNAL FACTORS.
We work hard all year and you know what you should be working on, I have trained you all well.
I may not be there in body but I am in spirit. You can do this, you need to focus and do as much as you can.
I am always an email away for advice and I will be updating the blog regularly re work each week.
GOOD LUCK, KEEP SAFE AND WORK HARD.
I will always be there looking out for you all like this crazy cat, you are nearly there, keep going!
