Thinkering Studio Project Proposal

Nail Art 101
Allie (Me!)
What challenge/goal/question will drive your work? What nail polish is best and safe for the nail? What nail art can I do best?
What are you creating/making/producing? A YouTube channel for nail art tutorials.
What do you expect to learn? / Why are you making this? I want to learn how to do cool nail art designs. I love doing my nails and I want to know how to make my nails look good.
How will you be challenged? I will be challenged to learn which nail polish is safe and how to make my nails look cool and find an easy way to paint them.
How will this stretch you? (Look at the Thinkering Studio Rubric for some ideas.) I can't do nail art so I will be challenged to perfect the nail art and find an easy way for other girls to do it too.
Nail Polish (I have)
Main Steps:
  • Research, Paint, Edit, Post.
  • YouTube
  • Create
I want it to take 1+ Quarter(s)
  • Youtube will be a BIG resource because that is where my inspiration will come from.
  • Videos and Google will help me.
What parts of this project might be difficult? How do you expect to handle them? It will be hard to make sure the design is perfect and simple with still looking cool.
How might your project fail? (Conduct a pre-mortem) I might not be able to post a lot or make my nails turn out simple. I could also get sick form the nail polish.
