Futurist Inspired Dancers

Posted on Sep 29, 2014 by Ashley Stroud Last Activity on Sep 29, 2014

This lesson was the result of a collaboration between my digital illustration program and the dance department at our performing and visual arts high school. Tied by the theme of the dance drama, The Grid, the Void, and the Sign, we took photographs of the dancers jumping, practiced gestural drawings during their rehearsal, and then composed digital artworks inspired by the Futurist art movement using geometric forms in repetition to show movement through space and time. The lesson covers these Adobe Photoshop skills: editing Camera RAW photographs, B&W adjustment, watercolor, pointalism, pencil drawing, woodcut effects, pattern making, selection tools, and layer masks.

Photoshop Collage

Posted on Sep 28, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Sep 28, 2014

I do this with my students every year and get good results. I select 8 photos- some stock, some that I have taken, and have the students create a photo using 5 of the photos. This is a culminating project where students are expected to use all of the Photoshop skills that they have used during the year. I insist that students make at least three different versions and save them using Layer Comps. I have the students turn-in .psd files which I check for the layer comps, layers, etc. The download contains instructions, rubrica list of vocabulary that students are expected to know, and several of the excellent Adobe .pdf "how to" files.

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.

Creating Type Magic in Photoshop

Posted on Sep 23, 2014 by Dawn Bradley Last Activity on Sep 23, 2014

This lesson explores intermediate type modifications. Once I teach this lesson, I make students shape or adjust their type in some way. I usually demonstrate the steps given. After the lesson is over, I have students create a second document using another word(s) like the name of our school or our mascot. They must do the same steps without my help. They may ask their neighbors for help during this time. I have them to give their neighbor feedback on his/her type changes. Then they have to make a suggestion on how to do it differently. We may repeat this type of lesson several times until I feel comfortable with their skills.  They will do an application test to demonstrate their skills without notes or help from neighbors.

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.
