is the site of Big Questions. What do I want to do with my Life?
What do I REALLY want to do with my life? What am I passionate about?
What is fun to do? What is my deepest desire?
What will we do with these questions? Let's begin by looking at
art created by wonderful artists who wrestled with big questions
with their art. Next, we will figure out what are the big questions,
the hurdles we perceive in our own lives. Once we get those questions
out into light of day, we will start brainstorming what we consider
to be our strengths (the personality tests will really help with
this exercise) and what resources we have at our disposal.
Next, (this can really be fun!) we will tap into your hopes and
dreams. From their, our journey will head into the land of technology
by learning the presentation tool "PowerPoint" in preparation
of using your research to create a presentation for your Art Final.
