The students are working on their final major project in Illustrator to finish up the week. Students will have a vocabulary quiz on Friday and a notebook check. All classes will have a couple smaller assignments (color wheel & masking) in Illustrator to complete when we return at the beginning of the week.
All classes will begin Photoshop after fall break! I know a lot of students are looking forward to Photoshop and learning how to manipulate photos!
Hope everyone has a relaxing and safe fall break!
The students finished working on the Calligrams on Friday and this week they will kick it off with the Yoga posters! These two posters will count as two test grades. They will spend a lot of time using text, formatting text, repeating patterns, etc. I look forward to seeing how well they will do on this assignment.
I have spoke to each class to let them know that all grades have been entered into synergy. If your child is missing any assignments you will see a zero for their grade. The students know that have until Wednesday, September 12th end of day to turn any missing assignments from the first week. After this time, I will not accept those assignments and the zero grade will be their final grade for the assignment.
I am at school each morning by 7:30am and all students are welcome to come in and work on their missing work. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me.
The students will learn about typography. They will review the different types of fonts – serif, san serif, script and display – just to name a few. They will learn the different parts of a character and other terms like tracking, leading and kerning. We will also review text box styles – left and right justified, centered, how to create a run around. Just about everything to do with text.
The students will come up with ideas for their calagrams, and ligature setup/pathfinder tools using their initials.
Later in the week, they will start their next large project – Yoga posters. This project counts for 2 test grades!
Until next time…
