During our final session of the year, we will be exploring Graphic Design & Genius hour! The beginning of the quest was spent learning about design fundamentals, color, typography, layout & composition, using images, video and putting it all together to create images, websites, logos and more! They will also be working simultaneously, over a 3 week period of this quest, on a special art project with our Art Guide, Rebecca Faubion. They will be holding an Art Exhibit on Friday, June 21st from 2:15-3:15pm.
During the second half of the quest, we are inspired by Google's Genius Hour Idea, in which employees are empowered to explore their own passions for 20% of their day. Here at Acton West, our Eagles are exploring their own passions during project time for the rest of this session. In the beginning stages of Genius Hour, the Eagles will spend time thinking of the things that drive them, excite them and inspire them to gather more information. Some projects are made to solve a problem or satisfy a need. Projects will be planned through idea mapping, gathering supplies and sometimes, collaborating with others. While working alone or on teams, the Eagles will be spending their Genius Hour time researching their subjects, asking detailed questions and working on their end product. We can't wait for you to see the final Exhibition on Wednesday, July 3rd!
