Attention, seniors!

NOTE FOR ALL SENIORS: All seniors are going to be slated for a personal college talk with me during class over the next several weeks so that I can be sure that I am aware of your college plans. I will help you if you are still needing advice. Daily schedule! >>>This week: Today - Logan and JoJo / Friday - Kristina and Paola Next week: Mon. > Obed and Jessica Tues. >  Sophie and Kate Wed. > Brandon and Alex Thurs. > Krystal and Tatum Fri. > Francisco and Alan (More to come...)

***This week's college talk is postponed to MONDAY due to our tours tomorrow.

First Year: 
To advance your skills...only after you complete the tutorial on vector portraits. Try this easy tutorial on painting to complete in class when you have some time this week.
(Step by step using simple strokes to create a scene.) Choose your own reference to put side by side next to your own painting. Painting tutorial!

I will interrupt you to work with you for a short while from the board in Photoshop at either 10:15 or 2:15 today. This is mostly reinforcement of what we have been learning to do with the pen tool and the paintbrush.

Sketchbook #15 - Write a word and do a visual representation of that word. This can be very interpretive, or it can be literal. It is your choice. Push your idea to be something interesting in terms of composition.

If you are scheduled for food styling, start at the beginning of class, mentors. Today's mentors are Henry and Colin.
