If you don't already know about the digital publishing course here at BHS, it's a wonderful course that tasks students with creating real world projects. Timelines are tight and critiques are intense, but this class prepares students to work in a professional design agency atmosphere, learning both design and marketing skills.
Mr. John Lyons from Pine Glen Elementary School recently asked us to create a new logo for the school. They are changing their mascot from a beaver to an owl so we took ourselves down to the science center, meeting Miss Pavlicek and Scout, the great barred owl that lives outside here at BHS. It was a great experience and it really helped us to understand how to draw owls.
Which one do you think Pine Glen should use?!
I teach art at Burlington High School in Burlington, Massachusetts. My goals include teaching my students to live and thrive with 21st century learning skills while helping them to learn valuable creative artistic thinking and technical skill.
