So, this past week we (Theana, Tammy, and I) have been studying for our colloquium exam that's taking place on Wednesday. Of the 500+ images we have to memorize (title, date, location, medium, and context) only 25 will be on the test. You read that right, TWENTY-FIVE. So, what does... Continue reading

Hello, everyone! I was positive that I wanted to present our preliminary website on the first day, but as the days passed by I realized that it was a terrible mistake. Between trying to study for my slide exam, preparing for my comps, and having my birthday this weekend, I... Continue reading

Hey everyone, This was hell week #1 out of many more to come. Not only did I have to work on my design project (which I really challenged myself with) but I also had to aggressively study for my foreign language proficiency exam that's required of all Art History MA... Continue reading

Hello Everyone! Out of all the things we have learned about, I'm most excited to learn about interactive websites and how to make your own website more interactive.

Hello everyone! I'm actually surprised how much I've been enjoying Photoshop! I was very pleased with the outcome of the cat man picture that we all worked on. It actually got me motivated to rummage through my parents' old photos, scan them in, and restore and retouch them! Although I... Continue reading

Hey Everyone! I don't know about you all, but I actually found CSS and Dreamweaver to be easier to grasp than Photoshop. All the buttons and options in Photoshop are just way too daunting! But I'm very glad that we have our textbooks and articles (and of course, Google) to... Continue reading

Hello Everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Spring Break, although I know the word "break" doesn't exist for MA and PhD students! I believe we're starting to learn about Photoshop this week.

Hello Everyone! Hope everyone got around to finishing the Columbine web page! I actually found it a bit challenging to create the dingbats for the sub headers, but I ended up figuring it out! However, I couldn't figure out how to add the flowers to the header, so I'm hoping... Continue reading

Hello, Everyone! I don't know about you all, but this was one of the most difficult projects I have ever done. I definitely think that hardest part about this whole project was picking out a font. I spent hours upon hours trying to choose which fonts looked the best and... Continue reading

Hello, everyone! I don't know about you all, but I have now realized how oblivious I have been to all these small components that goes into making a website.

"I'm Going on an Adventure!" Hello, everyone! We had to create our first portfolio website this week, and let me just say that it was definitely an adventure. After many trials and tribulations (and multiple panic attacks) I finally got my portfolio page up! It's not the fanciest website there... Continue reading
