VSAR 302: Professor Evaluation

I love how direct Nancy was with feedback and critique. I am able to take the feedback being an art student but I can see how it can be “aggressive” towards students who are not used to critique. I like how Nancy would constantly email us what is due and what is expected for the […]

VSAR 302: Favorite Assignments

My two favorite assignments are the studio lighting assignment and the flash field trip. I liked the studio lighting because I wasn’t aware of how to do all 5 of the different types of lighting and it isn’t something you know unless you are taught it (Especially butterfly and rembrandt).
