|2012/13 Production Art Course Outline|
Over the first semester you will be learning the basic principles of perspective through a series of assignments that will be given out on a weekly basis.
Each class will start in the lecture room and attendance will be taken. If you stop showing up to class, I will assume that you are no longer interested and plan to withdraw from the program. Do not show up in the final class and ask, "What can I do to get a passing grade?" (It has happened before and I will not accomodate you.)
You will need to bring your paper, pencils, eraser, ruler and notebook along with your Layout and Perspective textbooks.
There will typically be a lecture and in-class demo during which you will be expected to participate and ask questions. Once the lecture is over, you will begin working on the assignment. During a review week, Brian will look over your drawings with you one-on-one and give you feedback and revision suggestions if necessary.
Note: If your assignment is not handed in by the deadline (beginning of class) you will be deducted 10%. If it is not ready by the end of class, it will be deducted 20%. If it has not been received by e-mail by 6:00 PM the same day it will be deducted 30% By the next day 6:00 - 50%, and by the third day 6:00 - 100%.
To submit late work by e-mail, your artwork must be in .jpeg format - compressed no larger than 5MB. Send the file to: email@example.com If the file is unreadable, I will send you an e-mail to let you know and you must send me a proper file otherwise the deductions will continue.
While it is understood that you also have other courses which may have assignment deadlines that may be due later the same day or later in the week, it is expected that you learn to budget your time properly. Production Art class time is for Production Art, not any other course. If you are working on something not related to Production Art, you are wasting the instructor's time with you.
Perspective is made up of some very simple rules. For some people, this comes easy. For others, it can be a very difficult and frustrating experience. I will do everything I can, short of doing the drawings for you to try and help you through the process. Ultimately, you are responsible for your own work.
