Meet Weekly for 30 Minute Zoom Sessions



This is a blended learning course.


An important part of students growth is to receive critical feedback. This helps with getting over drawing blocks, hurdles and technical challenges. Projects can be submitted to the marking portal aka The Critique Area and are then analysed and returned back with action steps to get better.


Students are more than welcome to submit as much content as they want and can book a 30 minute weekly Zoom chat to discuss completed work and future projects.
