Step-Up Week 5 Day 2

Today  we went on a field trip to a job/career fair in Maplewood. We learned about the manufacturing industry and the types of jobs available. The jobs they told us about payed high salaries and some didn’t even require previous experience. Most of the jobs only took 18 year olds or older so I can’t work at any but I still learned a lot. I did some activities like playing a game, taking a picture and hammering in nails. Overall it was a cool experience because I learned a lot about different career options.

Step-Up Week 5 Day One

Last week I went to professional development training. We learned about work safety and our rights as working minors. We also learned about financial literacy and set career goals. We completed a work book and watched a couple videos plus we got a certificate at the end. All in all it wasn’t too bad and I am happy we got school credit for going.

Step Up Week 4 Day 1

Today I started working on my violence prevention postcard. I spent a lot of today researching about violence prevention and the damage abuse causes people. The hardest part about making post cards for me is that I can never find the exact photo I have in mind so I had to spend some time doing that today. Im looking forward to coming back tomorrow and working on my postcard.

Step Up Week 3 Day 3

Today I mostly worked on practicing the photoshop skills I have been learning for the past three weeks. The piece I created today doesn’t really have any theme but In tried to focus on blending several layers together and that was kinda hard. Since the whole thing is trial and error I learned a lot about using the different blending modes. I also figure out how to put a clipping mask on an image so you can put a image inside another one. I’m looking forward to coming back next week and starting on a new project.

Step Up Week 3 Day 2

Today I finished my Complete Streets postcard. My postcard shows a guy on a bus and through the bus windows you can see pedestrians, a cyclist and a woman waiting for the bus. I wanted to illustrate several different forms of transportation and how a Complete Street lets everyone have safe access.

Step Up Week 2 Day 1

Today we got to make t shirts  using a screen printer. It was interesting because I’ve never used a screen printer and it was fun doing a hands on activity. In graphic design we finished editing our obesity prevention postcards and we started working on a new post card for this weeks theme. I’m looking forward to coming back tomorrow and working on my post card.
