"I think the reward for conformity is that everyone likes you except yourself." -Rita Mae Brown

My name is Sebastian Marulanda and throughout my journey of high school, being an individual has often been difficult and unrewarding. Expressing myself using the tools provided at high school is usually difficult and so to further explore my expression in different mediums I entered Freestyle. Throughout this program I have been able to more fully communicate my ideas and follow my passions as an artist, a writer, a designer, and more importantly a student.

This website can be used as a portal to any project I have created throughout my time at Freestyle. At Freestyle I am taking three classes: Digital Media, Design, English. Within these classes I have learned to use multiple programs and have been able to express my ideas using different means of technology and art. For example, I have had the extraordinary pleasure of using Photoshop, Pro Tools, Illustrator, DreamWeaver, and Adobe Animate.

Conceptual Project

In the Conceptual Project we were given vast amounts of liberty to express ourselves on whatever topic we choose. The purpose of this is enhance our communcation skills and expand on the question, "How can I use unconventional forms to express myself?"

Narrative Project

In the Narrative Project I will compose a short story using different tools than ones in the Conceptual Project. I will be creating a short animation based on my narrative. The question we attempt to answer within this project is, "How well can you visually tell a structured story?"

Documentary Project
In the Documentary Project we use our voice to develop a distinct perspective about a subjects significance in the world. Our goal is to answer the question, "How do you creatively and truthfully portray a significant person, group, place, idea, or issue in the community?"

Similair to the Conceptual Project, we end our junior year honing any 21century skill we have acquired since we began freestyle in the Exploration Project. Our final challange for junior year comes down to the question, "How can you find, explore, and/or expand your passion?"
