[1st] year critiques
October 7, 2012 § Leave a comment
The guest critics all circulated through the space asking questions and giving helpful hints on craft and IARc in general. Though [2nd] years were instructed to not hold back any punches, we all remembered what it was like being in [1st] year and how scary the critiques were. We gave them advice on craft like hot glue might work but it’s not the best solution, to think and build bigger, and to focus on the details. Also this year with the [1st] year and [2nd] year studios being right next to each other we encouraged them to feel free to come over to our studio and ask what we are working on to get to know us. As a [2nd] year now giving the advice, this experience gave me a perspective on what one should take away from our critiques as well as a new view of how we might look at our own work.
