Model observations on my teaching

Here is a note from one of my models that made my day:

I make the least amount of money working for AIA but it is the MOST FUN and rewarding, and YOU are TRULY such a pleasure and blast to work for and with. And, you are so AWESOME with your students. Aside from getting to learn a little from seeing what the students produce, and listening to what you're teaching, that helps me with my own paintings, I LOVE how you teach them, with positive reinforcement and get them engaged, how they're all working together and, of course, the fun I have modeling for what I see them produce. They're so fortunate for what you're giving them that they're going to take so much more with them than just learning to draw and paint. 

... THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for the opportunity you have given me. It's the least amount of money I make modeling for anyone but, it is truly the most rewarding one I do. I sincerely appreciate that you're part of the GOOD Karma that has come my way, and I don't take it for granted in the least. T.B.

Design Fundamentals Winter 2014 Final Projects
pinhole camera

Students select a personal challenge to address in their final in Design Fundamentals.

This pair of students asked to work as a team. They had individual tasks on the team and together created a card-based game that actually got Kickstarter funding.  Yay!

Erika applied her interest in Graffiti to her program in Graphic Design.

Savvy designed a home using her design fundamentals challenges.

Ali in game design created a character.

Lerma used Unity to create a character in a fun bouncy physics environment.

Olivia wanted to paint and she did express her design challenges of Texture and Color!!!

Jimmy in our Game Design program created two aspects of the same character.

Chris loves to draw so he made his own dragon responding to his challenges of positive and negative space and color.

Josh didn't know how to create digital paintings until he challenged himself to create this image in answer to his design challenge of Space (depth) and Texture.  Look at that atmospheric perspective!

Teaching Reflection
I have a lottery system by which each student "draws" two elements and one principle of design to achieve in their final project.  the project must relate to their major, and thus, their future career.

Overall. giving students a specific Design Fundamental Challenge focuses their approach to the final project and ensures that students target a key principle and element to achieve in a composition.  This achievement promotes pride in their work as you can see in these photos and engages them in refining or developing new skills in the process.
