The class had more cardboard creations to share, which led to a brainstorming on What if’s for each project. We viewed another collection of inspiring What If images, and Dick critiqued the latest homework, and talked about how to Exploit the designs for next week’s homework.

The fifth session of the Design and Color class for Winter 2017 was held on Wednesday, February 1. We continued our exploration with cardboard rolls; Dick shared a slideshow of inventive and often humorous examples of ‘what if?’; and during the critique Dick discussed the importance of considering the full range of artistic options by way of using a ‘check off’ list before committing to a project. In preparation for the new assignment, to Converge and Develop their own geometric modular design color program, the class examined a design Dick created.
