Graphic Design Intern

Flyer Design RAFFMA

Last year I had a 3 month internship with the Robert And Frances Fullerton Museum of Art at Cal State San Bernardino.  It was an awesome experience and I highly encourage anyone to seek out internships.  I had the opportunity to work with a creative director who gave me freedom to design various flyers and the direction to fine tune and finalize for print.  This particular one was to be sent to local schools, particularly to 6th grade classes encouraging visits to explore the Ancient Egyptian Collection.  The museum houses the largest permanent and public display of ancient Egyptian artifacts in Southern California.  Pretty cool right?!  There are also Asian & African ceramics, contemporary art as well as the various student exhibitions throughout the year.  http://raffma.csusb.edu/index.html

Hope everyone is enjoying their Monday and has had plenty of coffee to keep them going.

Recycled Art

Happy May!

I have a habit of keeping a lot of my children’s painting, colorings & doodles. I actually have more pieces of colorful paper than I care to admit. And as part of another goal to bring more color to our stark walls by adding our personal art I came up with this idea of mixing the kid’s art with my crafting, a bit of artsy recycling. It was fairly simply and didn’t require many tools.

All you need are:

Scrap piece of wood

Paint or stain

Thumbtacks

Hammer

Some sort of paper art

Frame hanger

Here’s what you do:

Paint or stain your wood – set aside to dry then attach frame hanger to back

Cut your art up & arrange it in a shape of your choice – glue it to the board

Carefully hammer the thumbtacks along the border of your art

And voila… custom recycled art.

Now hang it and enjoy!
