This week we are going to begin working in Adobe InDesign CS6. Our projects for this application include the following:
Magazine Cover - Using the green screen, take a magazine cover photo of yourself or a classmate. We'll be using Photoshop to change the background. Download these mastheads to use for your title. Create the cover by placing teaser text, other images and a background color.
Art Exhibit Poster - Choose a famous artist (daVinci, Michaelangelo, or Caravaggio would work well.) The poster will be tabloid size and advertise a spring exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. You will need a dozen sample work images for your artist. A research source you could use is the Google Art Project.
Photo Package - we will use this template to create photo packages for our class portraits.
The skills we'll be trying to develop this week include:
