About the October 11, 2011 Class Session

Thank you for your reflection papers and your development work on the Pop Art Compositions. Continue working on either refining your elements, compositional thumbnails, grid composition and producing your final composition. Strive to keep the craftsmanship compatible to the original work of Lichtenstein, Blake, Dine, Oldenburg and Warhol. We will conduct an “in-progress” critique next week.
