Great Color Creation Website

Posted on Sep 23, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Sep 23, 2014

If you haven't seen this or played with it yet, it is a beautiful website with minimal interface. A great website for teaching about color schemes, etc. I wish that we could download schemes as Adobe Swatch Exchange files.

25+ Experimental Typography Showcases

Posted on Sep 23, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Sep 23, 2014

This is eye-candy and inspiration for anyone who uses type - and who doesn't every day?  By viewing the many images of imaginative (and sometimes illegible) type layouts and uses, students will gain a better understanding of what's possible. I use this as a 10-minute visual warmup before we dive into typography particulars.

Type Matching Game

Posted on Sep 23, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Sep 23, 2014

Students always wonder how to choose two typefaces that will look good together on the page. This little "Dating Game" will help them explore the methodology of pairing type. Excellent game. Short, quick, self-explanatory.

Adobe Acrobat for Portfolios

Posted on Sep 19, 2014 by Clint Balsar Last Activity on Sep 19, 2014

This professional development session plan is aimed at helping my participants create a PDF portfolio by using Adobe Acrobat Pro. I have used Adobe's FormsCentral to create both a Pre-event questionnaire form and an Event feed-back form. A handout has been included to allow participants to have key points, as well as a space for a few notes. By the conclusion of this workshop, all participants will be able to begin the process of creating a PDF portfolio from varied resources and understand the benefits of building them for both their course instruction and their own personal/professional artifacting. This will be an introduction that is intended to encourage further usage and exploration for the motivated, intrinsic adult learner. All participants will be encouraged to develop a unique backdrop and custom header to begin exploring the benefit of creativity to their portfolio.

Drawing Graphics with Illustrator

Posted on Sep 17, 2014 by Elizabeth Luna Last Activity on Sep 17, 2014

I developed this lesson plan for the Train the Trainer course. Included with the plan is an illustrator file that can be used to teach the basic drawing tools in Illustrator. Since developing it, I have used it to teach the tools to my students and saw a drastic increase in understanding and ability. Students caught on to the tools faster than ever before and have come to really like illustrator. (I did base this design and development off of a template that was previously designed on the education exchange by Jesus De Dios).

Weekly Lesson Plans Semester 1, 2014

Posted on Sep 3, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Sep 11, 2014

I always like to look at how other teachers sequence their teaching, so here are my first semester scope and sequence plans for my Art classes and my Computer classes. The second semester is when I really get going heavy with Adobe software. I teach in Tainan, Taiwan and I am surprised that the students are not more tech-savvy. Anyway, I welcome your input and suggestions. The Art plans have a lot more links. I use the free online program: www.commoncurriculum.com to do all my planning.
