Students will be learning about Graphic Design careers. We will discuss branding, logo design and play bill design. Students will create their own play bill for our Tapp production of the Lion King Jr. We will be learning to use the computer application Canva.com. https://www.canva.com/
Students will need to use the Cobb Digital Library to find images of things that symbolize the story of the Lion King. They will have to upload the images to their Canva poster template and manipulate them using filters. They will need to include the words:" Tapp Middle School Drama Club Presents:" and "The Lion King Jr.". The title should be larger than the presenter to show emphasis.
Students will continue to work on their Muralist, Cartoonist and Tattoo Artist hand outs. They will choose one Fine Art Career to create their own design or composition. Final work must be completed on drawing paper and be fully rendered with pen, markers or colored pencils.
Students will finish up their Architectural and Book Illustrator projects. We will begin learning about 3 more Fine Art Careers: Cartoonist, Tattoo Artist and Mural Artist. Students will complete activities for these art careers.
8th grade students will begin a Semester long unit on Art Careers. Our first category of careers will be Fine Art. Students will learn about Book Illustration and Architectural Illustration. They will choose which career they would like to research. Students will spend one class period using technology to research a book illustrator and create a Word Doc with a paragraph about the Illustrator. They will also use the book of their choice and summarize the story in 1 paragraph. Reference images of main objects needed to complete their book cover should be saved on the Word Doc and printed so they can reference them in the classroom. Students that choose Architectural Illustration will research an illustrator and type 1 paragraph in a Word Doc about the artist. They will choose a Georgia building for drawing inspiration. They will need an image of the building saved to the Word Doc and printed to use for reference in class. Students may use devices in class for reference images as well. Students will create rough sketches of their designs and then begin final drawings.
