Future Designer from Saint Mary's
Hussein The Artist
Hussein, a seventh grader at Saint Mary has been the best designer amongst all my students so far.
He knew about inkscape and vectors even before I introduced it to his class. So Hussien has been taking any opportunity he gets to come to the computer lab. For example if he has a free lesson in class, instead of staying in class like his classmates, he would come to TechLit lab and offer to help teach.
Following Your Passion
“So, Irene, because I am already an artist, how can I benefit from my talent? ” he asked shortly after I introduced vector art to his class.
I told him all about graphic designers and how they are crucial in so many companies. From designing logos to even fonts. I also went on to explain free lance, how he can have his own agency and be self-employed designing logos for people.
He was so happy to hear that. “I can’t wait to benefit from my designs.” He said and went on to design really cool hats, shoes and even abstract art.
