Project Work for Week 14:
Welcome back from the Thanksgiving break. I hope that you had a restful long weekend and you're ready to get back to work. December will mean be a movement into page layout skills and we will be working on getting prepared to begin putting pages together for this year's yearbook.
We will start with a simple photoblock project. For this project, I am requiring that all images used be your own photography. You can use cell phone images if you'd like - just make sure the quality is good.
Another project we work on at this time of year is our annual calendar creation. For those of you without income for presents, this is a great way to give a small gift of your creation to family members or friends. Make sure that you have a strong theme before starting this project - please try to work on this project a little bit every day - this isn't the type of project that can be completed in a day and it's somewhat complicated in scope.
Lastly - we will be running our SkillsUSA in-house competition to determine which TCHS PIckering student designer will be representing us at the District SkillsUSA competition in February of 2016. The competition will be held on Friday in both the AM and PM classes. This will be a logo design with specs given to you that day.
Mr. Tucker is in his 22nd year as the instructor for the Graphic Arts program. Prior to his teaching career he worked in the flexography industry for ten years and in quick printing for ten years.
