Students also began their first projects this week. All students created a nametag for their storage cubbies. After looking at typography, the study of type as design, students created designs which showed their style and personality through their font choices. Students hung their nametags on their cubbie drawers for identification.
Students also began the creation of their sketchbooks at the end of this week. Using a simple bookbinding method and readily available materials, students made their own sketchbooks to use in class and at home for the semester. They decorated the front and back covers with images, words, and ideas which they felt represented them and their interests. They created some colorful covers which really reflect their personalities!
