In 2012 we added a new facet to our program : end of the year student evaluations. For four days, the faculty met with each student to critique his or her work. Students were invited to bring in outside pieces, but the largest portion of the critiques centered on this year's figure drawings from the model room.
With all the pieces together, side by side, the faculty assessed individual progress while also identifying regressive tendencies. This made it easy for the faculty to set student goals for the coming year.
