Ms. McFarland was amazing and she was very detailed on her vision mood board. I found this by luck but it really helped me to acknowledge my room and I killed some free time and made it into progress and wrote what the mood felt like at the current place I'm living at, so unwasted time is always good. So thank you for this wonderful video. The only thing the music might have been louder than her voice but
I am an art student, and i decorate and design as a hobby. I recently redecorated my own room. Now i see how much simpler it could have been. it would have ended up the same or similar, without the stress and time. thank you!
This series is short and to the point. Each segment is filled with enough information for a viewer to understand and follow along with the tasks the teacher asks you to do. Although the music can be distracting and overpower the speaker's voice at times, the content is still understandable. I do think that the teacher could expand more on how to capture the essence of a mood or theme as I tend to overthink that part when rearranging and redecorating my room which creates a bit of a clashing overall mood or theme. I will be trying out the information I gained from this class when I redesign my room next week and will be sharing the results if anyone wants to see how I applied the lessons taught in this series.
