The course project

Your class project is to create an artwork with type in it.

You will first practice letters on lines, boxes and in shapes. After your practice session , I want you to think of your ideas, emotions or feelings that you are experiencing and create an artwork based on that idea. When you submit your artworks, let me know a small description about what your idea or motivational quote or that inspiration was all about.
