This site will guide you to information you will need to take full advantage of the content presented in lectures, demonstrations, workshops and critiques. For critiques, students must establish their own PICASA gallery. That location must be linked to this class blog page (via Student Photo Portfolio Links below) so their work can easily be accessed during critiques.
