Week 5_Instagram Activity

  First thing is first, in my opinion this was the hardest assignment I have ever tried to do in this class. Although I am a computer engineering major, setting up the account and learning how to use “Instagram” totally killed me. To be honest I had to get the help of my daughter to…

Week3_Graffiti Writing

Week1_Plaster Casting

Well to begin with my major is computer engineering and I need this class and another GED to finish my bachelor. By now I have never created a website, special thanks to professor for teaching me how to do create a website. For this piece of art, I used plaster and a face shaping template. At first I just put the clay on the template and made sure it was fitting completely. After that I put it on a cool temperature area and let it dry up. For it to try up completely took around 1-2 hours. After it was finished I couldn’t believe how great it looked like even though I didn’t really do anything for it. It was a fun and interesting experiment although I thought it would be much harder. This project also gave me some ideas for my 3d printer project that is actually due for one of my computer classes.
