Your Digital Journal {4GB flash drive} will be a space where you store all photographic documentation of your studio projects in WASH, both work in process and final solutions. In addition, all research done on contemporary artists+designers for your lecture component of WASH, as well as overall visual eye candy/inspiration will be organized in folders on your flash drive. Specific details about what is expected prior to each DJ checkpoint will be communicated prior to the deadlines.

The WASH Visual Journal {sketchbook} is available exclusively at BearKat Art Supply {located at 2223 Ave. J}. You may purchase your Digital Journal {4GB flash drive} anywhere that you choose.

The habit of keeping a record of your creative growth {artistic habits, visual successes + failures} is a crucial to your development as an artist, designer photographer and animator. For this reason, Visual Journal {VJ} & Digital Journal {DJ} assignments will be given often, in an effort to encourage and maintain this habit of thoughtfulness…FUN!
