2 Point Perspective Drawings: You will create two different drawings - one in Adobe Illustrator and another using traditional art materials (graphite or colored pencils) It might be a good idea to watch this video below before beginning your drawings:
Photography Basics: We'll be reading the technical information on this Learnist site that I created for learning basic skills in photography. These tutorials are geared towards helping you understand the mechanics of the Canon Digital Single Lens Reflex (SLR) cameras we use in our lab. We'll be using this concept check sheet with these exercises.
Photography Scavenger Hunt: After passing a photography basics multiple choice test, you are going to be independently participating in a photography scavenger hunt. This idea comes from the website shift.org There are 13 items on the list below. You will need to take 2 different photos of each item/theme. For example for "weather" you could take a photo of the rain and then take a photo of the sunshine. Each of these photos will need to be posted to your journal with titles. A simple slide show will work for this purpose. Remember to take 2 photos of each theme: Dark Glow Smile Weather New Round Tangle Up in the Air Patterns Tomorrow Eyes A Sign A Self Portrait
Skills USA Pumpkin Decorating Contest - The pumpkin will be divided into two sections, one for the AM shop and one for the PM shop. Carly Buettner is our contest chairperson. I need to see potential designs for this contest by Wednesday morning. We can use this photo to demo what our pumpkin plans are.
Illustrator Self-Portraits: We'll be transferring the self-portraits you created in Adobe Illustrator to wood this week. Make sure that you have sized your portraits to fit into an 8" x 10" area and include a 1/4" of bleed on all four sides. This is necessary to allow for slight movement that can occur when we laminate the print to the wood. The print should be slightly larger.
Journal Post to Learning Journal: Post an end of the week entry detailing the work you accomplished this week. Screen captures should visually demonstrate progress on all project work.
