Happy Thanksgiving!

Wishing all of my students a safe and restful break!

I’ve given the students the last couple of days to rework projects/classwork to resubmit and work on missing assignments to make sure everyone can start with a solid foundation going into the last few weeks of the semester.

When we return we will start with a quick review of all the novel covers from each class and then jump right into InDesign. The students will learn how to create a layout in InDesign, place images, place text and use alignment and be able to use multiple page documents. This will be the final program they will learn during this semester.


Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!

A Novel Approach…

Wow! Time is flying…and it is finally starting to feel like fall! 🙂

On Monday, we will start our A Novel Approach. The students will see what it is like to be like a true graphic designer working on a book cover. They will be given a synopsis of a book and title. They will need to research and get the feel of what the book is about from the synopsis and create a book cover. The will have 3 working days to complete the project – due date Wednesday, November 15th at the end of class.

Thursday and Friday are catch up days in class. The students will be able to complete missing assignments/projects that they are improving or have yet to turn in. They have until 3:30pm on Friday, November 17th to turn any missing assignment. After this time I will not accept an assignment from the first 12 weeks.

I hope everyone has a restful and joyous time with family during the Thanksgiving break!

Be the Ad and more on Photoshop

The students will be wrapping up their tutorials on vignettes and double exposure images. They have time to complete missing assignments and get up to date.

Tuesday is a teacher work day! No homework.

The students will work on tutorials and practice different effects in Photoshop. Friday, they will go back to Illustrator to refresh some simple skills/tools they’ve learned earlier this semister.

Until next week….
