This assignment is two-fold: create a two dimensional design for ART 1600 and apply a Creative Commons license to it so that it can be remixed, tweaked, and built upon by the Taft College Library and turned into bookmarks. The theme of the assignment is "Mindfulness" and its final purpose is to be a bookmark that can be colored in as a joyful, creative release during the stressful final exam week at the end of the semester.

techniques for creating two-dimensional art forms.
