Here’s what to bring to class on Wednesday:

  • Homework exercises 1-4 (film, veil, volume color)
  • Any new experiments with layering rectangles
  • Paper: 1/4 sheet, a few 1/8 and/or 1/16 sheets
  • Paints, notebook, etc.
  • AND: a flash drive (thumb drive) so you can take home a copy of a tutorial movie about light, which will be of immense help for next week’s homework.
