Good work by all last week on the 3d packages. It appeared that everyone learned something new about Illustrator last week. This week we'll be having a couple of new skills we'll be working on. Depending on what year you are, the main focus may be different for each of you. Here are our main focus goals for the week:
Seniors: Friday we'll hopefully be able to reschedule the NOCTI hands-on part of the test. Use the extra few days to review InDesign skills and creating thumbnails and progressive comps. You should all be working on your senior projects by this point. It is a good idea to see how you will be evaluated before you begin planning your presentations. It's smart to get photographic evidence of you building your product - all of the steps should have some sort of visual evidence - doing this will make your presentation easier to do. This is the evaluation sheet that will be used to judge your senior project and ePortfolios.
Juniors: You need to complete your Job Shadow Project by the end of April. It's important to understand the expectations for this project. Below are the documents that explain how to approach your job shadow experience.
Guidelines for your Job Shadow - read this first to understand the process.
Approval Form - pay close attention to the date requirements
Mentor Interview Questions - these questions will help you conduct your mentor interview.
Reflection Form - After you've completed your Job Shadow, answer these questions that will help others understand what you've learned from the experience.
9th & 10th Grade Students: I want to see 9th and 10th grade students add yearbook designs, package designs and job research papers up to their ePortfolios. We'll be doing portfolio reviews on Thursday morning.
We'll also be working in Google SketchUp to create an art museum tour of your work. You can download the tutorial for this work here.
