Tasty Tuts video tutorials

Posted on Jan 22, 2015 by Keith Shafer Last Activity on Jan 23, 2015

Hello, I just wanted to share what I believe to be some of the best, easily understandable tutorials available outside of AdobeTV. Gareth David of London, England's Tasty Tuts has a slow, enjoyable way to follow along and supplies all the assets and resources you need to complete the projects. Best of all too, is that they are all on Youtube and free. They helped me immensely, and I highly recommend them to anyone wishing to learn Adobe's core applications. Mr. David is always adding more, and has several other outlets to explore as well, including his own site, a blog,facebook, twitter, and more. Below is the text from the Tasty Tuts Youtube "about page" as well as a link, and I hope you find all this helpful. Cheers, Keith  Design & digital arts creative video tutorials. TastyTuts is an endeavour to inspire creative minds, looking to learn how to use Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign to bring imagination to life. From beginners to those that are highly skilled, TastyTuts offers a wi... Read More

Aaron Draplin from Draplin Design Co. designs a logo in 15 minutes for lynda.com.  A really great example for students of the design process, the power of broad brainstorming, content and style knowledge, and seeing someone work who loves what they are doing. Great for design students but also a really good example for all arts disciplines.  Here it is. Here is Draplin's website: DDC

Custom Brush Challenge 02

Posted on Jan 14, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Jan 14, 2015

Use Illustrator to create custom brushes (or shapes) for Photoshop in this three-part video tutorial (building on CBC Part 1) reinforcing existing skills and introducing a few new strategies. (While I'm at the Linked Learning Conference in LA, I hope to engage my students in San Diego from afar.) This is day 7 of a new series of Mac Lab videos. Teachers, like students, need a challenge. Mine, for the remainder of the school year, is to create new quests for my students each day. I've no idea if I'll be able to achieve this goal but my students, for the most part, have had fun beginning this journey.  These tutorials aren't intended to be refined or polished. They're intended to be a daily extemporaneous exercise—though subject to rerecording when I become especially maladroit (which happens all too often). The idea harkens back to the spirit of Confessions of a Video Tutorial Junkie. The tutorial is here: Custom Brush Challenge 02 Mac Lab Video Tutorials is the new Y... Read More

Custom Brush Challenge 01

Posted on Jan 12, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Jan 14, 2015

Use Illustrator to create custom brushes (or shapes) for Photoshop in this four-part video tutorial (that sounds like I'm in a steel box) reinforcing existing skills and introducing a few new strategies. (While I'm at the Linked Learning Conference in LA, I hope to engage my students in San Diego from afar.) This is day 6 of a new series of Mac Lab videos. Teachers, like students, need a challenge. Mine, for the remainder of the school year, is to create new quests for my students each day. I've no idea if I'll be able to achieve this goal but my students, for the most part, have had fun beginning this journey.  These tutorials aren't intended to be refined or polished.

Mac Lab Daily Quests

Posted on Jan 9, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Jan 23, 2015

This idea comes straight from World of Warcraft—from the Garrisons in the WoD expansion, specifically. The folks at Blizzard really delivered with this update. Now it's my turn. I intend to provide more resources—day in, day out—than my students could ever hope to complete, much less master. Why? To provide them with choices leading to a richer, more engaging learning experience. And, to provide me with an epic challenge to reinvigorate my own role in the classroom. Time to shake things up again. You can follow the experiment via our YouTube Playlist, the Quest Archive, or the featured quest each day on our home page.

Mac Lab Daily Quest Archive

Posted on Jan 9, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Jan 9, 2015

Starting the Mac Lab Video Tutorial Playlist on YouTube is phase one of my plan. Providing students with daily quests to accompany the videos is phase two. Archiving the quests (to stay organized) is phase three. I'm posting the link here on the off-chance a few of you will find something of value for you or your students. Note: The Mac Lab utilizes game mechanics and the experience is quite different when logged in. For more info about the full experience, visit the Game On Group here on the Exchange.

Mac Lab Video Tutorials (YouTube Playlist)

Posted on Jan 9, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Jan 9, 2015

After years of recording thousands of video tutorials and scattering them haphazardly around the sprawling Mac Lab website, I finally made the move to YouTube where all future videos will be archived. I plan on adding to the playlist on a regular basis and will share many of the specific video links here on the Exchange as individual resources. These tutorials aren't intended to be refined or polished. They're intended to be a daily extemporaneous exercise—though subject to rerecording when I become especially maladroit (which happens far more often than I'd like). The idea harkens back to the spirit of Confessions of a Video Tutorial Junkie. Kind of a Just do it! challenge to get the creative muscles back in shape.

Environmental Booklet

Posted on Jan 7, 2015 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Jan 10, 2015

This project is similar to the Story Book project, but instead of writing and illustrating a story, students must write about environmental issues from the cube. Cause, effects, and solutions are the main themes here. To do the assignment,students roll the "Enviro Cube" - template for the cube is included - and then they write an article, illustrate it, and produce a final, clean 12-page book. This is an instruction sheet, template for pre-production sketches, extensive rubrics, templats for the "Enviro Cube" and InDesign Templates for printed and digital versions of the project. The  cube template can be altered for other uses as can the unique page configuration for the printed book. The project can be done completely by hand or it can be done using illustrator and printed out, or the final product can be a product viewed digitally - it is up to you and the students. Suggestions and rubrics are included for both hand-done and digitally produced.

Play the Pen Tool Game

Posted on Jan 4, 2015 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Jan 6, 2015

This is a hidden gem by Adobe that you can access from the What's New pop-up box when you open Illustrator CC. or you can go to https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/tutorials.html to find it. It seems geared for little kids, but it helps with pen tool skills in a big way.   Anyway, on the https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/tutorials.html page, click on Learn Essentials. Scroll down, and under the heading Create Artwork you will find Play the Pen Tool Game.  I am using it is all my classes.
