Create a Simple Flower Logo or Design Using Adobe Illustrator

Posted on Nov 5, 2015 by Alisha Crawford Last Activity on Nov 5, 2015

Although time is short had to revisit Illustrator to create my simple flower design to go along with my short lesson and  warm-up Intro to Illustrator lesson plan for grades 1-3.  All of the products used in this course are great for creative experimentation and I've really only scratched the surface in Illustrator.

Photoshop Water Color Effect

Posted on Oct 25, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Nov 3, 2015

Students will design a collage centered around a theme of their choice.  Each image will be placed individually on the canvas and laid out according to their design.  Each image must be water color designed one at a time to create the effect.  If you flatten and try all at once, there is a chance of inconsistency in overall design and it will look fake.  This is a good lesson to practice layer masking, image adjustments and perspective, color theory and typography. You can use your own color effects as well as your own background canvas.  These were given when I found this tutorial online.  Blend Modes will depend on the images and the Color used so suggested blends are guidelines not rules!

Shot Construction Worksheet - Flipped Learning Lesson

Posted on Oct 21, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Nov 19, 2015

This is a revised version of this post. This short activity provides students with an opportunity to practice storyboarding a range of shots portraying familiar situations. There is a predominant focus on subtlety and it also provides opportunities for sharing and reflection to better deconstruct the work they are doing. This lesson is designed for Media and Photography classes but would work well in an English class that is working on a film as text assessment. Realising that I often spend a good portion of beginning of the lesson going through examples and shot types I thought I would try a flipped learning approach - the lesson begins with a Video Essay to be watched by the students before the lesson so that they can get straight into the activity and use the class time to their advantage. I have attached a link to the YouTube video and also the shot construction worksheet.  Just in case the YouTube link doesn't work, this is it: Read More

The ipad makes signing forms so much easier. This is a two minute tutorial I created on how to make it happen.  Old way of signing a form: open it, print it, sign it, find a scanner, scan it back in, sent it back New way: open it, sign it, send it back (in about 2 minutes)

"The Worst Roommate Ever" Practice Edit

Posted on Sep 25, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Oct 21, 2015

I found this video on Film Riot which they suggested be shared for basic video editing practice.  The material depending on what grades you teach may not be appropriate for school.  Not for foul language but just in general content.  This is up to your discretion.  I am attaching the script and the video for this project that teaches practical editing, timing, reaction shots and cutaways from raw footage shot by the Film Riot Team.  Please have your students give credit to Film Riot in the credits of their project.

InDesign for Yearbook

Posted on Sep 21, 2015 by Matthew Miller Last Activity on Sep 21, 2015

This is an ongoing series of video tutorials to take a student from no experience with InDesign to a competent Yearbook designer.  The focus, clearly, will be on InDesign as a tool for Yearbook layout.  Some specifics will apply only to our Yearbook here at CAC, but most of the material will be general and broadly applicable. [Watch on Youtube in order to get the links to the rest of the videos in the series.  I'll link them here as I develop them, but Youtube will have the most recent uploads sooner than EdEx.]

Captivate Draft Overview

Posted on Sep 9, 2015 by Mark DuBois Last Activity on Sep 22, 2015

Adobe Captivate Draft is an iPad based tool which allows you to quickly create eLearning content and share it with others. You can collaborate with peers in the creation of the content (they only need a browser to review and comment on the module). You can then pull the results into Adobe Captivate 9 and build your eLearning content quickly. This is an overview of the tool I recently put together. This weblog post also includes a working example of the finished example along with Captivate Draft and Captivate 9 files you can download and experiment with.

Conversing With Myself Clone Project

Posted on Sep 6, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Oct 7, 2015

This is a great project for Critical Thinking and Problem Solving.  Students will have to script their concept and determine specific angles, movements, cutaways and timing to make sure that their cloned individuals are all in place and look realistic.  Great script writing, filming and editing project in Premiere or After Effects or both.  This can be done as a Photoshop or Photography Collage Concept as well.  This sample production has a noticeable jump cut which I use as a sample of what moving the camera will result in.

Matte Painting Destroyed City Project

Posted on Sep 6, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Sep 6, 2015

I found this tutorial online and have made a few modifications to make the project a bit more detailed.  Once completing the basic Destroyed City Concept,  I added the steps for students to use three additional images in their project to give it more flare  and to illustrate their knowledge and understanding of the tools necessary to edit images and save correct images (ie. PNG images) Also how to use correct color corrections, levels, curves etc to make the images blend in with the given concepts.  Student can gain extra credit for going out and shooting their own images to edit and add as a creative aspect to the project as part of Photography.  Great project to learn many of the basic tools and effects Photoshop has and to get a great understanding of perspectives, angles and proportions for realistic designs.

From Line Art To Brushed Illustration

Posted on Aug 18, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Oct 14, 2015

I found this tutorial online and set it up as a pdf for easier following.  Its great because it goes from beginner illustration and the tools to learn through basic color design and then into shading.  All along learning more tools and techniques and learning how to illustrate, shade and use color concepts to complete the design.  This is a great assessment to see how students have developed over the course of the assignment.  At the same time I have found that this assignment gives students vast knowledge of Photoshop Basics and Color Theory.  This assignment can be developed along with the full vector detail using Illustrator the Live Paint Bucket and Expanding Appearance the Shading in detail.

Final Short Film

Posted on Aug 15, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Sep 19, 2015

This is a culmination of every aspect students learned over the entire course of the year.  It includes lighting, producing/directing, editing, filming, filter effects, shot composition, location scouting and photography for story boards, special effects, animated titles, scriptwriting, story-boards, video research and final rendering.  This project still bugs me because they didn't complete what I think could be a really good short film.  However what they completed in my mind is really good for high school students.  Especially finding a burned down house to match the online video they found to assist what their actor did.

Cartoon Illustration/Animation

Posted on Aug 13, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Nov 3, 2015

I had my students write short stories and then record the voices for each character.  Then the students drew, illustrated and exported their characters for animation in After Effects and Adobe Premiere.  Voice overs were recorded and edited using Audition and then inserted into the animation process.  Songs and sound effects were taken off royalty free web sites. Here is a finished animation of characters, backgrounds and facial features and mouth movements completed by one of my sophomores. The cartoon character animation adapted and Papagayo voice animation software to complete this project.
