Despite the potential for revisions it is still compulsory to have the 3 images along with the corresponding text for the 3 images all printed and ready in studio to pin up so the entire class can view and discuss everyone’s selections.

Please immediately email information of each image in terms of artist and title of work so I can post this information on the course website to avoid any duplication. Please check this course website at: http://derekbruecknerpaintingcoursesimages.blogspot.ca/2012/09/students-3-selection-for-what-is.html to ensure you are not duplicating anyone else’s selections. 

Well before the deadline if you only have some of your selections completed email that information for the instructor to post and once you have all 3 selections finalized then send the information again will all the selections in one email. Additionally to this requested information for posting on the course website if you have any links and or jpeg images to correspond with the requested info that would be greatly appreciated.
