Art 2551 Final Schedules

Hi all,

So, to clarify who needs to be where and when:

The morning class (9.10 – Noon) will meet on Saturday December 10 at 12.30pm – 2.30pm. We can meet on the 2nd floor like a regular critique.

The night class (5.10pm – 8.00pm) will meet on Thursday December 8 at 8.00pm – 10.00pm. We can also meet on the 2nd floor like a regular critique.

Please also bring:

A usb drive or cd with a folder (titled “Your Name”) containing pdf’s of each project – 6 pdf’s total. Please don’t give me Illustrator, Photoshop or InDesign files. I’ll copy the pdf’s to my computer so I can keep digital versions of your work and give back any hard copies I still have.

Please don’t hesitate to email me with questions you may have.

Have a good weekend and good luck with any other finals next week.
