Reflecting on the assessment criteria
Demonstration of technical and visual skills – Materials, techniques, observational skills, visual awareness, design and compositional skills (40%)
I am confident in my performance although from my last OCA course I have adopted a much bolder approach in this area taking on more complex challenges in design and composition so I am keen to gain some feedback as to the success of this.
Quality of outcome – Content, application of knowledge, presentation of work in a coherent manner, discernment, conceptualisation of thoughts, communication of ideas (20%)
Again I am happy at this stage with the outcome and believe that this work is a good benchmark for my thinking and working practices at present and so serves the purpose of assessing my starting point.
I am particularly interested in gaining feedback on colour management and the finished prints as this is a relatively new skills area I am keen to improve.
Demonstration of creativity – Imagination, experimentation, invention (20%)
I think in particular I have made a very good attempt to meet the assessment criteria in this area.
Context – Reflection, research, critical thinking (20%)
Again, I am very happy with the contextual part of my work and I have positively used all three areas to enhance my assignment.
