final project

Once essays have been succesfully submitted both online and in hard copy, students should revisit the 3D Thing project, but now in the light of a fuller understanding of their chosen artists/designers. Make a new 3D Thing. How does your fuller understanding affect/change the way you work? As with before, make sketches and write notes – these can be added to your essay at the end of the course – they will not change your grade, but they will support it, make it more substantial. Work in room 043, but always come to room 054  first to register.
