Our lab was just updated to the most recent versions of the Creative Cloud. You should start using the 2018 versions of most of the programs whenever you can. They appear to be stable. Below I will be sharing how some of the new tools work. We will be working through several of the new tools every day for the next week.
This project takes the Zentangle project to the next level.
The supplies you will need:
I will be attending an Educational Technology conference from Monday through Wednesday this week. While I'm out I have three different projects I'd like you to work on creating. Please post finished scans of your progress on these projects as they will be combined for a major project grade. It is your choice as to the order you wish to work on these. Please clean up after yourself and be sure to put caps on pens!
These are generally done on small cards using a pencil and fine point marker or pen. If you've done these before, you might want to challenge yourself by doing a zentangle animal like below:

Photography Project: This week we're going to change it up a bit and I'm going to give you three samples of work from an artist friend of mine, John Armstrong. I worked with John about thirty years ago and he's a very creative sculpture and photography artist. Usually I give you all kinds of how-to videos but this week I'm only supplying three photos John created. Use these as a basis for a project of your own creation. You will need to research surrealism and use Photoshop masks to compile these images together. Solve the problem through Google research and your own creativity. Everyone will post their finished project to their portfolio page by February 9th.
