Below are a few more pictures from Art Camp last week. In addition to learning photography techniques and animation tools, students also used image altering programs like Photoshop and Picture Manager to create colorful and humorous images like those displayed below.
Students worked on animation today during Art Camp. From flip books to stop motion and digital animation, students used teamwork and creativity to tell all kinds of stories (many including portals). Tomorrow we will venture into game design and Thursday will be spent exploring one or all of the topics covered during this camp in more detail.
Today students decided they did not want to be done learning things for the school year, so they came into my classroom and learned basic ideas and concepts concerning digital photography. This is my second year teaching the Digital Art and Animation Camp and the 12 participates worked on taking and editing pictures today. We talked about the ideas in the slideshow above before going outside and putting the concepts into practice. After taking many pictures, students shared their favorites and learned some basic editing using Photoshop, Sumopaint, and Picture Manager.
Tomorrow we will talk about animation and use various digital and traditional methods to create a slew of projects to share!
