Last week we worked on exploring the many allied careers in the visual arts. This week I want you to research many of the great assets student-artists can use to reach those careers. Share your favorite art sites in the comments below.
I just discovered a student-centered site called Student Art Guide. Please explore their site and comment below on any good finds before Friday of this week. This week you will get some choices on the weekly project. We are doing a special drawing day this Friday - so make sure your project work is completed by Thursday. Below are some suggested projects for you to work on:
Welcome to Commercial Art Careers Week at TCHS Pickering! This week we'll be working on a campaign to help us and the general public understand careers in Visual Arts a little better.
This week we will be talking about careers, skills and training requirements for all sorts of careers in the visual arts. You are going to be designing an infographic in Adobe Illustrator as a culminating project. You are going to need to do some research on visual arts careers and come up with compelling information to share. It can focus on any skills, training, compensation, or skill area in the visual arts.
Below are some sites you can use to begin your research:
The size we'll be using for our infographic will be 600 pixels X 2000 pixels.
Below are two samples based on our class discussion on Monday:
Last week's assignments (defying gravity, agamograph, photo cluster) - two of these projects must be posted to your learning journals by Friday, April 17th. No extensions will be given.
This week's projects:
3D Drawing - Optical Illusion Art - we'll be using this tutorial to create a 3D drawing. This link shows an alternate way to create this artwork.
Photography Skills - Green screen photography will be used to incorporate ourselves into the analog 3D art project we're doing this week. We'll be using Photoshop to separate ourselves from the greenscreen background - see the video below.
Illustrator Project - How to distribute shapes within another shape in Illustrator This is an interesting free plug-in for Adobe Illustrator - we'll be working with this to create a study.
Yearbook: There a few loose ends (missing files) that need to be completed very early in the week. I will connect with those involved on Tuesday. We also have NTHS and NHS induction ceremony this week and need to finish a two-page spread by Friday morning.
The book looks very good - those of you that worked on it should be proud. Those of you that designed 5 or more pages will be getting a free yearbook from the publisher. We need to get out and sell this hard! We will begin selling this week!
Projects: We will continue our work on these project choices this week. The details were listed in the Week 29 post. If you have completed and posted two of these already - we need to start using up some overstock materials that we've accumulated. Please see me if you've completed these projects and posted them to your journal. There are some nice samples posted below.
