Stop Animation

When I returned to school after maternity leave, my students were in the midst of a stop animation project. It was interesting to see how they used their critical thinking and collaboration skills to problem solve. Being the first time for a project like this, there were many unknown challenges. The final results were quite fun and will be posted soon!

Design Matrix

Painting 1 students studied the elements and principles of art and began a new “secret” watercolor project, more on that later. Right now we are working on design ideas using a matrix. Initial ideas will develop into thumbnail sketches and eventually a finished paintings.

Spring is here!

Computers in Design class were so excited to work outside today. Sometimes a change if scenery is a creativity booster. Here the students are working on animations. They are project planning, making group contract, investigating collaboration tools on their phones and drawing storyboards. A productive day.
