2014-2015 Self-Portrait Essays
by 1st Year Students

 

 

The Personal Essay challenged students to describe the visual symbol from their Self-Portrait Media Piece Presentation, which they delivered in English class, and to reveal the personal meaning of that symbol through true narrative(s) of their life experience. Using the college essay formula x+y=z (or theme+story=moral), students gained experience using writing to deepen their thinking about themselves and their Design Illustration, while also practicing a technique they will find useful during college apps next year! More details about the project posted through this page. Enjoy!

 

The following essays are from Film Students only - you can see their Self-Portrait Videos which are an extension of the Personal Essay through this webpage. Digital Media Students created a podcast from the essay and posted it as part of their Self-Portrait Website which you can see here.
