Hello my name is Svetlana Starodubtseva. This is my first year attending Lane and I’m really looking forward to the graphic design program. My hobbies have changed a lot throughout quarantine, but as of right but I’m really into drawing and painting. My preferred medium are colored pencils. With colored pencils I always get the outcome that I’m hoping for. For paint, my preferred medium is acrylic. I have tried branching out to other paints but I quickly realized that they weren’t for me. If I’m not doing either one of those two, I’ve been trying to teach myself how to play electric guitar. Sadly, I was not born with a musical bone in my body so learning how to play hasn’t been the easiest. But for the most part I’ve been able to grasp some of the basics. When I finish the media arts program, I’m hoping to become a graphic designer. Middle school was when I first really got into all of the tech/design classes. I was introduced to a few and I really grew to like them. Throughout high school I’d also take design classes. Since then I’ve been keen on doing design as a profession.
