Thanks for sharing really worthful
Love this! It centers around my favorite Art Movement. Can't wait to do this with my photography class and maybe my Art 1 and Fine Art Survey Classes this year. Thank you for sharing your great ideas!
John Doherty, we'd very much LOVE to have schools from UK/IRE involved in this year's Student Creative project, My-Thology: A Global Arts Collaboration . If you could share with folks over the Pond, that would be wonderful.
make sure to peep The Student Creative on the Adobe Education Exchange (por favor).
Great job on SurrealisticMe article in SchoolArts magazine...http://www.schoolartsdigital.com/schoolarts/201210#pg27
Thanks for the great lesson.
Got it. Looks captivating. Thank you, Mike! : )
Right here. :)
Hello Mike, I found an active link to the Surrealistic Me slideshow. Where might I find the project explanation and lesson? Thank you!
Watch for our next project, MyThology, coming soon to an Adobe Education Exchange near you! :)
I love this idea. This is also a great idea to intergrate fine art and tech! I'll be hitting up the art teacher shortly for a co-lesson!
Make sure to check out the print book versions of all the Student Creative global collaborations here on Blurb!
Here's a quick flier to share, download, or print!
My colleague just sent me this link: http://www.smartshanghai.com/articles/art/interview-ryszard-horowitz - this photographer is exhibiting in Shanghai now and his work is phenomenal- and great inspiration for our project.
The 50 Layers/4 Canvases resource might help some students come at Surrealistic Me from another creative angle.
About the book- It wouldn't be available for kindle, its out of print and not very well known even in art ed circles. I've actually never seen a new version for sale on Amazon before, only used copies- amazing what a new out of print book will run you! But I'd grab a used copy, its just a great book with some fantastic ideas.
As for the digital publishing.. interactivity- love it!
Dang! Art Synectics isn't available for Kindle. But Amazon does offer tree-versions... Then I noticed:
4 new from $164.35 18 used from $34.98
Yikes! Won't be getting a new copy.
Can't wait to get the kids primed for this project. And with Adobe's new digital publishing model it looks like we'll be able to offer an interactive version as well. :)
Thanks Mike, I'll add those to the website. By the way, the more I think about it, the more I find those operational techniques useful to all kinds of projects. The book they are from, "Art Synectics" is just amazing - out of print but you can find it on Amazon. I'm thinking of stenciling them across the classroom wall.
w00t! This project is going to rock!
We'll be providing lots of resources and tutorials but if you want to get a jump on things, Matt Kloskowski has released a great book on compositing. Here's how one of my students went about building his own composite (a few years back).
Thanks for posting this Big D!
Thanks Nicole! We're all exited for our third project.
Love it, David!
