9:45 About Me – Cont.
With your newly acquired knowledge, for the remainder of the morning, we will be working on a graphic to describe yourself and what you did this summer. I know you were all in the same class last year, but some of you may not have talked over the summer and I can’t say I know all of you very well.
We will be presenting these graphics to the class right after break.
The graphic needs to contain the following:
- Town / School
- Favorite project from year 1
- Expectations YOU have for CAWD 2
- Any idea of what you wanna be or do
- Things you wanna learn (in general, not just cawd)
- List of 3-5 things you did this summer
- List of 3-5 hobbies or things you like
- List of 3-5 things you don’t like (spiders, the dark, etc)
- List of 3-5 bands / movies / TV shows / books you like
- 8.5″ x 11″
- Follow CRAP
When complete, upload a file called about.png to your week_01 folder.
10:45 Break (15 Minutes)
Now is the time you’ve all been waiting for, Presentations! During this time you will show the class your graphic and describe yourself. The class will have an opportunity to give you feedback on your design based on what you learned about CRAP yesterday.
11:30 Sticker Design
As you may know, we have a vinyl cutter in CAWD 2. This allows us to cut out silhouettes or shapes that are stickers. I had some time this summer to read up on the cutter and waste a lot of vinyl, but I think I may have it figured out.
Watch this older apple commercial to get an idea of what we can make.
- 4″ height
- 4″ width
- Black shape
- White Background
- Vector Artwork
We have an array of colors to choose from, but your design will only be printed in one. So choose wisely. We have Pink, Red, Dark Red, Blue, Green, Lime, Orange, Yellow, Gold, Silver, White, and Black. Again, you may choose ONE
As I mentioned yesterday, I will be printing out two for each person, one to put on your computer here in CAWD, and one to bring home and do what ever with.
When complete, upload your two stickers as lastNameColor1.jpg and lastNameColor2.jpg into your week_1 folder. After that, send me an email with the two images.
