TESTIMONIAL

"In the year that Yasmeen Eid has been part of our Heritage High School Team, she has been an instrumental addition to the Visual and Performing Arts Program. Under Yasmeen's facilitation, she has developed and implemented a new Visual Communications program including writing the new Visual Communications curriculum that was sent to the UC Course Management Portal for A-G approval. In one short year, Yasmeen's classes have become a popular course for students fulfilling their Visual Arts requirement for graduation and A-G completion."

Goal: Students will create two sticker designs by applying their research of the unique elements of art found in the primary sources of each decade in order to better understand how the mix of colors, typography, and shape can define a time period. Stickers will be used as marketing material for the student run film festival.
