Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve blogged and I apologize. Anyways, I just started my fourth year here at RIT and I am really excited for this year. I started the quarter a little rocky due to my severe allergies turned sinus infection. I thought I might get the dreaded swine flu! But I chugged along and I am feeling 10 times better.
This quarter I am actually taking a couple freshmen classes. This is because I changed my major the end of my second year and I basically forgot that I had to take those classes. Taking these classes isn’t too bad…I just feel really old…
am currently taking a freshman foundation illustration class and had my
first critique last week. It was a little painful. Now
when I was in high school, I never experienced a critique and didn’t
exactly know how they worked. So when I started my freshmen year of
college and had my first critique, I was scared senseless. I am quiet
enough as it is, but during the critique, I tried to be close to
invisible. I was so afraid of saying stupid or having my work verbally
abused. But over the years and after countless numbers of critiques
under my belt, I am more comfortable in voicing my opinion and taking
criticism. I do wish, however, that I knew the things I know now when
I was a freshmen. So here are a few tips on critiques for you guys who
are looking into our College of Imaging Arts and Sciences.
