I have just received my portfolio back from my assessment for this unit, and that has reminded me to post about the results of the assessment. My intention is that it would be useful for future students who might read this blog to see not only the work, but also the feedback it received from the assessors. I was very pleased to achieve 68 as my assessment mark with the marks spread evenly across all the assessment criteria. This is far better than I had hoped for because I did not think my final assignments were strong. The assessors feedback was:
Your work has demonstrated your very good ability to use a wide variety of materials and sculptural processes throughout the unit. Your outcomes toward the end of this unit have become slightly too representative of your research, moving forward try to seize the successes you achieved through your tactile use of materials as in your Eva Hesse inspired large sculpture and drawings. You have made an excellent amount of research into your themes for sculpture and then discovering artists that influence your outcomes, build on your contextual research as you move onto level 2. Developing your questioning skills in relation to this research will help you to focus your ideas in the development of more work and eventual essays required for your next level of study.
As part of my submission, I sent in a single small sculpture composed of paper disks. I wanted to submit some physical work and selected this for its playful nature and its postability. When I accessed the OCA site this week to check something, I was surprised and delighted to find my photo of it headlining the site (the site has now already been updated with new work).
I have now started my Year 2 studies with OCA with Drawing 2. My learning log for this next course is at investigatingdrawing.wordpress.com
