Welcome to my Conceptual unit website. During this project, we completed a variety of smaller assignments in our three classes: Design, English, and Digital Media. These assignments included photography (found in the Art section), poetry (found in the Poems and Haiku section) and music (found in the Music section). We started our projects in English, then continued them in Design, and finally we assembled them together in Digital Media. We used programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Dreamweaver, Adobe Animate, and Pro Tools to put them together.
Overall, I very much enjoyed working on my conceptual projects. Not only did I gain experience about programs I had never used before, I also learned about the work environment at Freestyle. Classes at Freestyle function more like workspaces than normal classrooms. By the end of the unit, we were using all of our time to work on projects, and we had a lot of room for creativity in each of them.
In English, we wrote an expository essay on one of our passions. I chose to write my essay on why I enjoy art, drawing inspiration from several of my favorite artists and my own experiences. I have been drawing for most of my life, and it was very interesting to go beyond the obvious and find insightful reasons about why I enjoy it so much.
