Please let me know what artwork you are submitting for the Mary Horde Art show in this Spreadsheet and make SURE you have your art here and to me on FRIDAY!

  • G: 1.1Ac: Individually or collaboratively formulate new creative problems based on student’s existing artwork.
  • A: Last day to work on the self-portraits. This is an illustration that you are creating – the final portrait will not belong in the final image. At the end of the period – we will submit through Google Classroom and then do a self – assessment. Think about the tools that you were able to learn and use that were NEW to you and that were SIMILAR from Adobe Illustrator.
  • G: Continue to work with the self – portrait from last time in Adobe Photoshop. This is the LAST DAY! When you come in next time… you need to have 5 thumbnails AND the work of “Literature” with you. If you DO NOT HAVE SOMETHING WITH YOU, I will supply you with a work from your English Class (which is fine if you’d like by the way, you are reading it in class).
