Digital Art Task List

Here's the to do list that's been sitting on the Whiteboard in the computer lab for the past several weeks.
  1. Resume
  2. Career Path/ Further Study Plan
  3. Self-directed Portfolio Piece/s
  4. Journal
I wonder if I could set up tabs for some of these different tasks in this blog? That would knock over one of the skills I want to build for myself in my Z Twist Art blog.

Here goes:
  • Using "Pages" I created a new page called "resume"
  • Using "Layout" I added a gadget, "Pages" clicked on "Home" and "Resume" that put it into the blog layout. Initially it comes up on the left as a list, which is not very spectacular. I need to work out how to make it as tabs across the top of the page. I'm guessing that's in "layout" as well. 
Here it is as a screenshot--and that's achieved with shift, command 3 on the Mac

And meanwhile, here's a quick report of where I'm up to on these various tasks . . .
  1. Resume: I've got a resume at home in Word that's several years old. It would be the one I prepared when I applied for the Arabic Women's Project at Hidden Creek Neighbourhood House. As a minimum I could update it with the teaching I've done at Hidden Creek since then and this course. 
  2. Career Path/ Further Study Plan: I'm hoping to continue at NCAT with the Folio Prep--Cert IV Visual Art next year. The application form is in my bag and filling it in is on today's "to do" list. Update: completed and handed in application form on Friday 19 September. The next step will be an interview, probably in November.
  3. Self-directed Portfolio Piece/s: Oh, so many options here . . . the Market Poster and the Landscape task would  both do for this, but I'd like to tackle the Doll Project over the break . . . more about this later. 
  4. Journal: that's what this blog is all about, really.
