The year end exhibition for the City & Guilds course was again really wonderful. The talent and sheer hard work of the students is so humbling. You may be able to gather from my tone that I am not happy, though. I feel, no I know, the effort from this corner was not as it should be. And, if I fail the assessment, and have to re-do it, then I will.
Oh, I have all my excuses – I took on too much work, I am moving home (this week) both my husband and son have had back surgery, and my daughter has needed me more than usual, for childminding (due to her ill health and new job).
But, get the panel done, and get my sketchbook worked, and submitted, I did. And, as soon as I did I literally came down with a nasty cold, that put me into my bed for the whole of the next day.
But, if by some fluke, I pass this one, I have plans for the next year’s course, and have started thinking about it already.
Next Year’s will be involving Arts and Crafts, and or Art Nouveau. I had a quick discussion about it with my tutor, and she has suggested I don’t limit my area for research. I am to think of something I would like to research, and perhaps I can bring in elements of the A & C or AN.
So, a possible idea is to look at shape and form – but, I don’t know if that is now too wide. And, I must not just ‘Think’ about stuff, I have to get ideas down, and ‘play’ with them. I definitely need to do much more work than I have before, so that there is much more depth of exploration.
Hmm, I wonder if this is what I will be told when I receive my mark, from the assessment, and outside verifier.
