    Guess This Song

    For the Favorite Song Assignment, I’m suppose to choose my favorite song, remove the vocals, and see if people can guess the song by listening to only 30 seconds of the song.

SGT Hartman Soundboard This soundboard added different colors and more organization to build on the theme of categories.

    Picasso pls

    Our task was to mimic one of Picasso’s drawings, but the catch was that we had to do it upside down. This was so we thought of the lines as just lines, not shapes or objects.
