Week of October 23rd-27th (Mrs. Plagge)

This week in class we will be going fully into working on Concentration.  We will discuss some of the elements that make a strong concentration.  As we are now in the 2nd quarter, I have initiated a more dedicated deadline for Concentration pieces.  Below are the deadlines for each Concentration piece (Most are Wednesdays with one exception):

  1. November 1st
  2. November 8th
  3. November 15th
  4. Tuesday, November 21st
  5. December 6th
  6. December 13th
  7. December 20th

By the end of the 2nd quarter, you should have, at minimum, 7 finished Concentration pieces.  This will be in addition to all the sketchbook assignments that you have and will be working on throughout the semester.  Hopefully, this will give you a strong base going into the 2nd semester.
