Wow! What a great first couple days of school! It's been very exciting around here.
Yesterday, we spent all day discussing the syllabus and procedures. I had a little introductory presentation about myself, so students feel like the know me as a person and I become a little more "human". Parents, the syllabus and procedures is located in the corresponding class blog page in case you ever would like to see or review it. I also sent home a paper copy for your review. Additionally, If you're curious about who I am and my work, feel free to check out my little bio and portfolio by scrolling down on the "home" page of this website.
Today we are starting collages in all of my classes. This is a good opportunity for students to become familiar with the concept of "layers" as well as an element and principle of design - space and hierarchy. For my returning students, it's a good opportunity to build upon and practice these concepts after a full summer! Layers are featured in both Photoshop and Illustrator and we'll study the Elements and Principles of design here shortly.
I took a couple of photos from my 1st hour Flag High Screen Printing class. They are in the midst of the project right now. After all the collages are finished in all of my classes, I'll find some of my favorites and post them here.
Whelp, that's all for now. Have a great weekend!
