To begin with, go to this link, to see what is supposed to be on your website.
Quick review, as we get back into the habit of school, after Spring Break:
- Every class begins with 20 minutes of tutorials, to continue to learn Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator skills. It's a good idea to take screen shots every few days, and keep them in a folder labelled, "Tutorials," on your Google Drive
- Digital Photography Students: on your (reflective writing) blog entries, I am as concerned with the technical aspects of your photo shoots as I am with the aesthetics. As I have requested, please include the camera settings for the photos you upload to your site. I am interested in the artistic considerations as well as the lighting conditions (cloudy, sunny, etc.), but also the camera you used, what lens you were using, if you used a tripod or monopod, and finally, the f-stop, shutter-speed and ISO settings. These are the details every professional Photographer chronicles for articles in magazines and on the web.
- Beginning Graphic Design Students: You should be finished with your Zentangle and Geometric Symmetrical assignments, and have research images and sketches for the current assignment, which is the Social Justice poster.
- Advanced Graphic Design Students: Cyber-Bullying Posters were due the Friday before we left (uploaded to the folder I set up); we will be designing the Graduation Program (cover and insides), and getting ready for ArtFest, which is a huge undertaking.
- All Students: The Word-of-the-Week has two components -- 1. Your definition, reasoned out or invented, and 2. The actual definition, which I post at the end of the week.
