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.
The NOCTI written test is scheduled for early April and it's time to start upping our game to get ready. During the remainder of January and through February we're going to be running an in-class competition using Quizlet matching games.
Here are the week one rules:
- Play at least five different Quizlet match games per week.
- Do a screen capture (command-shift-4-drag selection) of each time score and email all of them to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday, February 2nd.
- For every five screen caps I get from each individual, they'll get one chance at winning an 18 x 24 painting canvas . There will be one prize for each AM & PM classes.
- You can increase your chances by playing 10, 15 or 20 times (or more) per week. Don't get too carried away with this!
- This is open to all Commercial Art students in our program - not just this year's NOCTI participants.
