Visual Composition Class Portfolios

Hi Visual Compers!  Here is a video that shows you step-by-step what you need to do to get your digital portfolio set up. Have fun with it and make it your own!

Ignore the log-in information in this video and log-in here: Spend some time looking at some former VC1 students websites to get an idea of what needs to be included. Those can be found here. By the time we see each other next I would like you to have a title for your blog with your name in it. You should also have pages set up that are sketchbook,  projects, and assessments. Feel free to add any additional pages you would like to add.  If you get stuck email me at and I will help you. Have fun with this and let me see your creativity shine!
