Required work and form of assessment:
As the Vienna Institute for Art and Technology studio is only available to IES students on Friday afternoons, students must be willing to report to class every Friday; the class usually starts at 1pm, but is open ended as far as length is concerned; students should plan to sign in and log hours in (at least 40 across the semester). Plan to be inspired, but know that silk-screening can be tiring work (mostly standing, washing and drying screens, mixing and applying colors, etc.). Plan also to spend time developing and refining sketches on your own, outside of studio time.
1. Overall performance in semester coursework - 30%
2. Attendance, participation, personal responsibility and initiative - 30%
3. Creativity and artistic effort - 20%
4. Artist’s Journal - 20%
The Artist’s Journal shall be a compilation of the student’s sketches and drawings, as well as diagrams, notes and writings. Entries should be dated, and done regularly, as the journal should be a record of the student’s ideas, thoughts, observations, etc., as they develop over the semester. On the last page please write: dedicated to the Vienna Institute for Art and Technology and IES Vienna, sign and date it. The journal’s importance should not be underestimated, and the journal should also include photos or examples of the student’s practical work during the course of the semester. The journal will be submitted to the instructor during the last class along with the student presentation of projects.
