GAD1 – Finishing up review of first Photoshop Quiz #1. Starting unit on Surrealism. Students will receive a file with a background and 4 images for practice. How to might you modify the images to show levitation, transformation, juxtaposition, and scale change. Last week students discovered the copyright free images located within the F176 Shared Folder. I’ll introduce them to Creative Commons and how to identify copyright free images within other web sites.

GAD2 – Comments have been posted on surrealism revisions submitted last week. This week we’ll look at exemplery web art portfolios and develop a rubric for class use. Then students will use Dreamweaver to create their own portfolio. The portfolio is a year long assignment. Rubric ideas here>>>

Animation – Continue using Photoshop to Rotoscope their Rotoball videos. On Thursday and Friday we’ll take a break and make a stop motion human video. Thursday class already has a plan. Fridays class will create storyboards for their plan. Hopefully we’ll end the year with a human stop motion video directed by each student.
