This week is an important week. We need to complete last minute details, package all finished pages, and upload the finished packages to Tuckers Resources>2015 Shield Files>DONE PAGES folder. We will be checking on Thursday and Friday to make sure all files are present. During spring break I will be compiling the finished book and ALL FILES have to be there for that work to proceed so we make deadline.
Last week we took a picture for senior standouts that was slightly out of perspective - the image included a frame around a portrait of Matt and Luna. We will be working with this image to understand how later versions of Photoshop allow us to fix the perspective so we get the image that we need. Download this image to complete this lesson.
Project Choices for the Coming Weeks:
Once your yearbook responsibilities are complete, you have a number of options for project work. We will be working on these three projects over the next three weeks. All students will be required to complete at least two of these projects by April 17th. All three should be really fun to work on and they will be a welcomed break from yearbook pressures and NOCTI testing.

This project should prove to be a real challenge, but you will love the finished product. I'm sure you've never created anything quite like this before. You will be creating a style of visual art that was conceived by the Israeli artist, Yaacov Agam. To learn about his life's work, watch this video below:
It's difficult to show Agam's work statically in a still photograph - the work requires movement on the part of the viewer. The term for this is kinetic sculpture. Below is a video that simulates that movement:
