So this week has not been quite as notable here in London, as I’ve been trying to catch up with some school work. On Thursday, I did go Tate Britain to see the Frank Auberbach exhibit but unfortunately I couldn’t take any photos. Still, they were beautiful paintings to see in person; some of the paint was 2 inches thick!
As far as school work goes, I’ve been quite busy. For the class that I have been visiting many of the museums with, our assignment is to create a workbook with our notes from the galleries and with critical response essays from each week. Our teacher showed some examples of past workbooks in class and most were just Microsoft Word documents. But, I find this to be a great design opportunity! What better way to put my love of design and art history together than to design a customer modern art magazine/workbook. So I have all of my notes all typed up in Microsoft Word and I have begun putting my magazine together in Adobe InDesign. I really like my cover right now but I think my layout still needs more configuring. My next step is to put together the critical response layout. This has been a really good time for me to brush up on my InDesign skills because it’s been a little while since I used it last. Also, it gives me encouragement to work on my essays because I know I get to design them once they are written!
