Color Calibrating your mobile device

Posted on Mar 18, 2014 by Clint Balsar Last Activity on Mar 18, 2014

If you already calibrate your monitor(s) with an X-Rite product such as the ColorMunki Display, then you may also want to take advantage of the mobile app they have released in partnership with Pantone. It is called ColorTRUE and is said to allow you to calibrate any mobile device for truer color. The app is free, but if you don't already calibrate your monitor(s), then you can get one from X-Rite for about $75.

Contests for Graphic Arts

Posted on Mar 9, 2014 by Deila Caballero Last Activity on Apr 3, 2014

This website is a great place to find contests that your students can participate in. Submitting work to a festival or contest I think is a great experience for students of all levels. Some of these contests could also be inspiration for a good class project or extra credit assignment. Graphic Competitions

Art History

Posted on Jul 31, 2013 by Ross Wallis Last Activity on Aug 1, 2013

This is just a snippet of interesting information. The word Montage comes from the German word meaning "fitting" or "assembly line" and the word "monteur" means "mechanic" or "engineer". It was most likely coined by the Dada artists George Grosz, who, after the carnage of the first world war, was looking to make a mechanical sort of art, taking out the artist's hand. This is the earliest example that I can find of George Grosz's photomontage.

Endless landscape

Posted on Jul 31, 2013 by Ross Wallis Last Activity on Nov 10, 2013

This is a great idea for a collaborative project. Create a plain landscape in Photoshop, which is identical on either edge. Each student in a class can then customise a version of the file, and, once printed, it can be put together as an endless landscape, in any sequence whatsoever. Works just as well with seascapes, sky-scapes or cityscapes.

Silhouette Dancers

Posted on Jul 31, 2013 by Ross Wallis Last Activity on Jul 31, 2013

This is a great idea for silhouettes. Find a plain white wall, and take a photo of people dancing or jumping, use the threshold slider to make the image black and white, and then if need be then use the quick select tool in Photoshop to select the background, to knock it completely back to white. Works just as well if you get your subjects to sprawl on a plain floor, and photograph from above, from a balcony or window perhaps.

Pop Art

Posted on Jul 31, 2013 by Ross Wallis Last Activity on Aug 3, 2013

This is a simple project idea based on the work of artist Patrick Caulfield. Simply photograph and object, or series of objects, use the quick selection tool in Photoshop to make a selection of the object, and then knock out the background with a colourful plain fill.

Julian Opie

Posted on Jul 31, 2013 by Ross Wallis Last Activity on Aug 13, 2013

The artist Julian Opie has made a very successful career from Photoshop, making images like the classic Blur album cover. Google 'Julian Opie Photoshop Tutorial' and you will find any number of tutorials on how to create this effect in Photoshop. Opie also animates his creations, which is cool, and easy to do. There are also any tutorials to be found online to create other Pop Art effects, such as the screen printed multiple images of Andy Warhol and halftone effects of Roy Lichtenstein.

Cut and Paste Faces

Posted on Jul 31, 2013 by Ross Wallis Last Activity on Nov 10, 2013

This is a great starter on cut and paste - get a group to take photographs of each other, select a collection to upload into Photoshop, and then make a composite face using bits from several photographs. Make the image more interesting by distorting features, using the free transform tool and warp mode.
