Receiving feedback is such a fraught experience. Submitting my work for evaluation is nerve wracking and definitely an exercise in vulnerability. Having another human measure the quality and quantity of my artistic output is not my favourite thing BUT since my goal is to stretch and grow as an artist, this seems a necessary evil.
My Assignment 2 feedback has come back (after some technical delays) and there are upsides and downsides to what my tutor had to say. Most was positive and really useful.
My exercise posts are too wordy and diary-like. I am to pare down the text to speaking about what I’m surprised by and what I’m learning. Less feelings and process and more factual reflection. This is not my writing style so that is a work in progress. I’m definitely not adjusting well to this feedback as this is the second time this has been brought up.
It’s possible that I need to produce even more volume of work than I have until now which is daunting. I am not sure how to carve out even more time to do this but must persist. I will do my best.
I’ve been given instructions to vary colours and materials to convey mood. I hope my next assignment satisfies that, however, I am going to review each of the posts before submitting them (as I’ve already done the work and am ready to submit it) to ensure that the journaling style and content is a better fit for the feedback from this assignment.
