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 5/2/14

1st and 2nd Period Graphic Design

In honor of our staff, next week is MMS Staff Appreciation week.  To get in on the fun, 1st and 2nd period students are working on a project that they will give to their favorite teacher.  Students chose 20 words to describe their favorite staff member and then use those words to create letterforms of that staff member's name.

4th Period Graphic Design

Students are nearing the end of their "Versus" activity, in which they create shapes and space with two digital collages.  The two sides of the piece represent two different ideas (fire vs. ice; sweet vs. sour; etc.)

5th Period Animation Lab

This group is wrapping up their partner assignment in which they are attempting to recreate the look and feel of one of the first-ever animated sequences, the 1906 film by J. Stuart Blackton, "Humorous Phases of Funny Faces" (original below).

6th Period Graphic Design

Since we've had a hard time getting syllabi and other early assignments turned in, we did not get on computers again this week. Hopefully we'll be on them on Monday. In lieu of computer work, 6th period students have been exploring line and value through a series of assignments such as making a micrographic self-portrait and their own zentangle hand outline.
