    Collaboration Nation


    I think one of the most important points that is made in this article about Online Collaboration is the mention of an agreement. Having students collaborate online can be extremely helpful especially when you would like to cover other important material in class instead of dedicating it to group work. …

    lovely leaps


      I absolutely love this picture of my best friend Mel and I. It just takes me back to freshman year of school when we had so little to worry about. The leap in this picture is so carefree and indicative of the life we used to live before we …

    Would you like fries with that?

    “What’s Inside of You?”


    I had fun with this assignment, however, I found myself regretting the program I used to create it as I tried to save it in a format that would allow me to open it in this post. I used Microsoft Powerpoint to create my poster detailing what’s “inside of me”. …

    Minimalist Philosophy


    “Never define your life in black and white because there’s so much hiding among the grays.” This is one of my favorite quotes of all time. Which ironically enough is why it’s my philosophy. I chose this picture to create my poster because I feel it just so accurately meshes …

    Autobiography Cover


    I chose to do this design assignment because I really enjoyed the idea of using a picture and titling it to represent my life. It’s hard to come up with a title for your life I soon found out the hard way. However, I finally decided on a title I …

    Alternative Book Cover


    In order to create an alternative book cover I had to find a book in which I could alter the meaning. That was the difficult part for me. I couldn’t find a book title where I could insert a different picture to make it appear to be about something different. …

    art is the only way to run away without leaving home


                          Mission Defamiliarize was my favorite assignment! I enjoyed taking everyday items and photographing them in a way that portrays them as unfamiliar items. The first picture is of my kitchen cabinets, taken from an angle underneath them and then …

    deceptive perceptions



    I had fun collecting the items to photograph for this assignment. Everything in this bucket was sitting somewhere in my kitchen. I chose these items because they were brightly colored and I thought they would make for an interesting color twist. I tweaked the color in this photo by …

    The best things in life, are not things



    The thing I hold most dear to my heart is my family. Things break, relationships fail, the glitter in the air will fade but your family is timeless. Even when they are no longer with you, they helped shape who you are and their memories will help shape who …

    Meet me by the swingset


    The idea of Ed Parkour, teacher’s who aren’t intimidated by the slew of variables that constantly work against them, is an inspirational one. Parkour, typically defined as: the sport of traversing environmental obstacles by running, climbing, or leaping rapidly and efficiently– reminds me of a jungle gym. Isn’t that essentially …
