1-2 (Final Project Examples for 2D Design)

1.These examples from the same assignment are incredibly different. The topic of research was unique to the student’s interests. This allowed students the opportunity to develop their own platform. Students wrote a response paper to the designs explaining their chosen topic, attributes and also verbally presented the project in front of the class during final critique. The final critique session allowed other students to engage with the designer by commenting and/or asking questions about the design and topic. 18×24

12. Off Campus Community Impact

While this may not be a traditional “student example” it is an important one to highlight. Every year my painting students volunteer time and energy to painting the store front windows on Main St to prepare for the City’s pumpkin festival. It not only gets students to think about painting differently but provides an opportunity for students to serve the community with their talents/skills in a relevant way.

13. On Campus Community Impact

2D design is a course open to non majors as part of the liberal arts requirement. . This student not only composed a “poster” about equality but also submitted it to the Annual DOANE IS LOVE event. Their design became the advertisement for the week’s celebrations and activities.
