We have a new system! Everyone must sign up for the new year!

Learning Resource Center Tip of the Week: REALITY CHECK!

The details… While every one wants to be outstanding in their art, not every project will wind up being everything it could be. Sometimes assignments and projects are designed to move you forward and are valuable for the experience. Sometimes there just isn’t enough time to do more than what you have. Do your honest best to bring your work to a place of completion / resolution, and keep track of ideas you might want to pursue at a later date. When confronted with multiple projects, ask yourself how much time and energy you really have to complete them all. Be honest about your need for sleep and food. Then ask yourself where can you take the project(s) within the time and space you have available. Doing reality checks as needed, can help keep your perspective on things and provide you with a list of ideas for fut ure work as well!
