Presented by Vancouver Film School Instructor Paul Jensen Talk Theme: The concept of story is as old as human experience, language, and the desire to make sense of our existence. Throughout this lecture we will explore the origins of story, its archetypal structure in myth, and we’ll focus on how these journey patterns are fundamental in various art mediums; including Film, TV, Video Games & Digital Design. VFS Media Arts Educational Talk @ Sisler High School Date: Oct 26, 2:10 pm CST (3:10 pm EST)Location: Sisler High School LibraryInstructors: Vancouver Film School instructor Paul JensenParticipate online: https://livestream.com/fsd Twitter: @SislerIDM, @DigitalVoices1, @Soapbox.ED, & #vfstalk
The resource provided is the checklist my Year 7 Media Arts students work through while creating their Ice Cream Logo Design. This 6 week unit has been written with consideration of the following Australian Curriculum 'The Arts' content descriptions: · Develop and refine media production skills to shape the technical and symbolic elements of images, sounds and text for a specific purpose and meaning (ACAMAM068) · Plan, structure and design media artworks that engage audiences (ACAMAM069) · Present media artworks for different community and institutional contexts with consideration of ethical and regulatory issues (ACAMAM070) RESPONDING: Students built on and refined their knowledge, understanding and skills through media arts practices by exploring, responding to, analysing and interpreting their own and others' graphic designs; aimed to advertise a product, using Adobe Voice. MAKING: included learning about and using knowledge, skills, techniques, processes, materials and technologies to explore two dimensional advertising. Students made graphic design artworks that communicated their ideas and intentions for a specific auidence. Task: The owner of ‘Simply Delicious Ice-Creams’ has decided to re-brand her business and you have won the contract. You will have to conduct research, prepare designs and create a final logo using Adobe Illustrator software to present to her. Advertising is a form of marketing communication used to promote or sell something, usually a business's product or service. Advertising Campaign is a series of advertisement messages that share a single idea and theme. Advertising Agency provides businesses with services of managing, handling, planning and creating advertising and promotional material. A target audience , is a particular group of consumers within the pre-determined target market, identified as the targets or ‘recipients’ for a particular advertisement or message.Brands allow consumers to distinguish from one seller of goods to another. Brand Values help agencies understand the organisation they are representing. This will affect the type and mood of advertising they create. The Brief is an understanding between a client and an advertising agency that outlines the objectives and targeted audience of an advertising campaign. The brief may contain strategies to be adopted in reaching the audience, the timeframe of the campaign, and its total estimated cost.
A few years ago, I worked with a local university to develop some curriculum for Arts and A/V CTE courses. I worked to create materials for Commercial Photography, but there are other classes included, too (i.e. Graphic Design and Illustration, Animation, Audio/Video Production, etc...). While they are aimed at the high school level, they are applicable beyond just that usage. Included are lesson plans, syllabi, scope and sequences and more. Due to legal requirements, there are no brand names mentioned. Therefore, programs such as Adobe Photoshop are referred to as "a Digital Image Editing Platform." The website is currently in danger of being taken down as the grant that led to its creation was not renewed, so download them all while you can!
After years of being relegated to “nice to have” status, the arts are now recognized as both a vital component of a complete education and a strategic tool for targeting a wide range of school challenges and opportunities. How are you using creativity and the arts as a catalyst for change in your classroom and/or your school? What do you see as the key opportunities? What challenges have you faced and how have you overcome them? If you're going to SXSWedu 2016, join a group of talented educators and advocates for art education to hear examples of how the arts are having an impact on school-wide issues like attendance and parent engagement, as well as the issues students face like building self-confidence and addressing conflict. Speakers: Robert Hoang - Art Instructor, Hayward Unified School District; Sherri Kushner - Media Arts Teacher/Adobe Education Leader, Chute Middle School; Malissa Shriver - Executive Director, Turnaround Arts: California. Date and time: Monday, March 7, 2016; 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM CST
I will be teaching a new graphic arts class at the high school level. We will be learning illustrator and Photoshop. I hope to develop small projects tailored toward printing t shirts and hats. I will be using the adobe illustrator and Photoshop classroom in a book but I also would like to teach students about the overall graphic art and design elements. What would be a good graphic arts textbook to supplement the classroom in a book series? Thanks
I have been blessed with the motherlode of one time funding as part of a CTE Incentive Grant. I have two sequences: Cinematic Arts and Graphic Arts. As part of another grant last year, I upgraded to professional 4K cameras and got a 4K TV for my classroom. From the grant I also just upgraded my 2011 27" iMacs to 20 GB ram from 4GB and PS and AI work great. Anyhow, my CTE Facilitator said, "No, you need a new lab." Who I am to say no? Here is my dilemma .... Both Cinematic Arts and Graphic Arts share a lot in common, but also differ in a couple of key ways. I was at the local Community College Digital Arts labs and they switched two labs from iMacs to Mac Minis with Cintiq Monitors. That would be great for my Graphic Arts students. I found the Cintiq to be so much more natural than the Wacom tablet. A Mac Mini would handle Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, Cinema 4D, etc. just fine. Video on the other hand, not so much. Especially as we move into 4K. Video eats up cores like the Cookie Monster eats cookies. The Mini's are only dual-core. Plus, the integrated GPU is awful for editing, After Effects, and DaVinci Resolve. So, to best meet the need of the Cinematic Arts students my best bet would be 5K iMacs, but I then lose out on Cintiqs for the Graphic Arts students. What would you do? I know ... first world problems.
Using Adobe in the Visual Arts classroomRecording available viahttp://bit.ly/live-event-13Aug15DescriptionA collection of ideas for using Adobe software in the Visual Arts classroom (NSW syllabus focus) and in teaching the Photographic and Digital Media syllabus. Focus is on Vis Arts, but is transferable. Introduces a few different exercises based in fine arts. Ways of using Adobe as extension activities. These are all tried and true exercises from a teacher with over 30 years experience and all have been road tested in the classroom.Software - Photoshop, InDesign, Acrobat Pro with reference to Premiere Pro/After Effects About the presenterMark Finlayson is the Leader of Creative Arts at St John's College Woodlawn.

Hello! my name is Monique and I've entered my first-year as a Graphic Arts teacher and I'm trying to survive the first-year working with high school students teaching softwares Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. The school I will be teaching at has no curriculum and last-year's teacher only lasted for the school year leaving the students with very little knowledge of what they learned or nothing at all. What type of curriculum would you create for high school students? Project based or what has been your experience teaching a graphic design class? Thank you, Monique
PBS Arts takes a look at typography. The second in a series of resources intended to arouse students' interest in typography.
Visual Design program areas prepare students for careers in graphic, Web/emerging technology and print production. Students gain the necessary technical and academic skills to create online and tactile designs and produce two-dimensional and three-dimensional products.
This resource contains files created to accompany the Adobe workshop From STEM to STEAM: Integrate the Arts.
Digital art is a general term for a range of artistic works and practices that use digital technology as an essential part of the creative and/or presentation process. Since the 1970s, various names have been used to describe the process including computer art and multimedia art, and digital art is itself placed under the larger umbrella term new media art. I believe that the arts are not spent materials or how to implement, As far as interested in the idea and the message behind the artwork. That's what I'm trying confirmed through experiments, across the width of the initial sketches and final work after Processing it through graphic programs like Adobe Photoshop & illustrator. this project called : a way This work influenced by other work I've seen in an exhibition in Cairo in 1991

I'm starting a school magazine for Arts subjects. I teach English, Media and Art and my school has Arts status. In the current climate of Gove educational reforms, that leaves the school in a precarious position and I'd like to ensure the lower school students see Arts subjects as a viable academic option. Is there anyone working on something similar? I'd like the magazine to be student led and student centred, but I'm having teething issues with getting the students interested.
The video posted on the Fairfax Academy Facebook page was created to inform, excite & recruit prospective students. Viewers get a quick glance at our offerings in the communications & arts fields.
My-Thology is the fourth global digital arts collaboration from the Student Creative. This year's challenge invites high school students from around the world to create a modern interpretation of a classical or cultural myth. Selected digital images, video, and animation will be compiled as a digital text and made available as a benefit for the Jacaranda Foundation. All media is due March 2013 in order to meet our May publication release.
I'm interested in connecting with other Visual Art & Media Arts teachers presently designing and applying or starting to implement the new Australian Curriculum. I teach at a private P-12 school in Queensland but would like to hear about how your state has supported you with resources, workshops and school based guidance. I have started to download some of my current resources applicable to the Aust. Curriculum to my exchange.
