For Tuesday (15March)

- Assessment 1A submission
I hope you all are chugging along well with this assignment (as well as the Tonal Values one). Realistically you should aim to have 85% of this task completed by now and that the next day is for putting the final touches on your sketches (ie. tidying up, adding last bits of shading for contrast, etc.

Please make sure that your names and student ID numbers are clearly indicated on your sketchbooks. You are to submit this assignment to your respective workshop instructors.

- Shopping list
For the second installment of this module, you will require the following:
1. Technical/Drafting pens (Rotring or Unipinbrands, pen thicknesses of 0.1, 0.2, 0.3 and 0.5)

You can also purchase these Faber Castell ones pictured above if you can't get either the Unipin or Rotring ones.

2. Set squares/triangles
3. Adjustable set square
4. T-square (A3-size is recommended for this class)
5. Scale ruler

6. Pencils
7. Eraser
8. Masking tape
9. Ruler

Not necessary but highly recommended are:
1. French curve

2. Circle template
3. A3 drawing/drafting boards

For the drafting/drawing board, you can get either the cheap wooden ones or the slightly pricier Rotring option (pictured above) which comes complete with its own ruler and right angle too. I personally own the latter and despite it's slightly hefty price tag, have found it useful many a time.

- The workshop session
For those who have already been assigned into the 1.30pm and 3pm sessions respectively, please attend your workshop at the given times.

However, for those who have not been assigned into the two separate times, please proceed to your workshop spaces at 1.30pm and further instructions will be given then.

Either way, please have these lecture notes with you as you will be given an in-class exercise to which it will be handy to have these by your side to refer to.

I would also advise you to bring in a measuring tape to class on Tuesday. Don't fret if you haven't got one handy, but if you do, please bring it in and you'll see why you'll be needing it! = )

Otherwise, hope you all have managed to enjoy your weekend somewhat despite all the assignments, looking forward to seeing you all in class!
