About Mr. McGehee

I grew up in the small town of Durant, Oklahoma and went to college at the University of North Texas in Denton, TX.  While at UNT, I received two bachelor's degrees: one in Radio, TV & Film Studies and one in History.  After moving to Bellingham in 2006, I attended Western Washington University in order to get my teaching certification.  I taught History and technology classes at high schools in Bellingham from spring 2010 to June 2012.  In the fall of 2012, I was happy to find what I consider to be a dream job here at MMS teaching digital art classes.  I enjoy the thrill of teaching classes that always change with the latest techniques and technology.

Aside from education, I have over 10 years of experience in graphic design, photography and the digital printing industry.  Living in Mount Vernon with my family, I enjoy cooking; looking for new music to listen to; listening to news podcasts and reading technology and design blogs.

Rundown: Week Ending 11/7/14

5th and 6th period Graphic Design classes shifted this week with the end of the quarter.  Quarter 1's 5th and 6th period classes spent the week finishing any lingering assignments.

2nd period Design Team

This week, we studied the design principle CONTRAST.  Specifically, using blur to create contrast and direct the viewer's eye.  Also, we explored mixing ABSTRACT and REPRESENTATIONAL IMAGES.  Students did several activities relating to these concepts and blogged about them.

2nd period students also got a chance to make some digital art by mixing ABSTRACT and REPRESENTATIONAL images.  This lead to some VERY interesting results!
