At last my new course materials have arrived! Lee at the OCA was very helpful when I enquired how to get them sent out and they arrived within a couple of days. I couldn’t wait to get started and opened them straight away.
I have had a flick though the course book already; it all looks a lot more inspirational than A Creative Approach and better written with more scope for students to develop their own voice as it’s not so prescriptive. I have also sat down and written a list of materials that I will need to get. I don’t have any screen printing supplies as yet for example so I will need to source some – what a shame!
I have also been on the Hampshire Library website to order up some of the required texts. I am having trouble getting a couple so I may have to buy those but that will come later. One is due in this week so I look forward to collecting that.
My new tutor and I have exchanged details which is always the first step and I really look forward to working with her. I have sent her a link to this blog as my learning log. I hope I can continue to use it but if not I will post the new address on here.
I really hope this course does turn out to be more interesting than A Creative Approach and that I can get really inspired by it. I struggled to raise enthusiasm for ACA at times but at first glance this course looks a lot better.
