Welcome Back to BHS 12-13
Welcome back everyone! I hope everyone had a great summer! I definitely enjoyed my time off, although I feel as if I always have to be doing something. I traveled a lot and visited friends and family. I also went to Chicago for a Teacher Institute in Contemporary Art and I learned a ton regarding contemporary artistic techniques regarding technology. Some of it was really intense! I wanted to share an image I created through a program called Processing. It allows artists to code to create art. There is so much that can be done with it, but this code takes images, averages the pixels together, and finds each average pixel to create a composite. We are totally doing this in Photography this year!
For those of you who haven't had me yet, you're in for a great year! I am really excited about the changes this year. We have a new principal (Mr. Sullivan) and new assistant principal (Ms. Deacon) as well as a new schedule. Top that off with our continuation of iPads in our curriculum and it could blow your mind! This year I am teaching web design, fashion design, digital publishing, and of course, Photo 1. I have been gearing up for your arrival with some great lessons and assignments for the upcoming year. But if you have any suggestions, just let me know. I will follow this post at the start of the year with info such as: how to use this site, informational cards for the art department, and all assignments. Use this homepage for all blog posts relating to all classes. Your individual tab above will be where all assignments and projects are posted. And again, WELCOME BACK BHS!
