ASSIGNMENTS

if you have not finished your collage…FINISH IT!!!

if you have everything turned in, try one of the extra credit photoshop assignments in the pick up box…in the folder ‘extracreditphotoshop’

I recommend trying the one named ‘zombie – easy’  you can zombify yourself or zombify someone else

if you do it and finish it, you can turn it as ‘p#lastnamezombie’

or you can try one of the other extra credit tutorials…try the ‘easy’ ones first

start thinking about your song title challenge…due next thursday

___________________

you can look at the opposites photos here

http://www.uhsdigital.com/Studentwork/0910/p3opposites/index.html

we’re not going to vote on these…because to be honest I’m not happy with the quality of your work.  These are not up to the standards of the class and I’m disappointed in many of these photos.  This is an AP art class and I feel like many of you did not do your best work here.  A few of you did good work, but not many.

Be honest with yourselves…did you really try?  did you do your best work?  did you have a good & creative concept? was your entry college level work?

So…we’re going to do the challenge over.  You have until next Wednesday to create an opposites image that is up to the standards of the class.

Come up with a good concept, take chances, be creative, be unique, express yourselves

AND

take good photos

we will talk about it on monday

ALSO FINISH YOUR MINI PORTFOLIO

5 good photos that are edited and creative & unique
