Senior Art - Grad Open House Invites

Senior Art,

Today you are going to create a graduation open house invitation using Publisher. If you do not have a date or if you are not having an open house, just make up the logical information. 

You can research some ideas for open house invitations, there is a ton of information out there. This is a link to my Pinterest board of examples of open house invitation ideas:

You need to have this almost complete for tomorrow to present to me. You need to think about a few things, you want your invitation to represent you. Think about who your audience is, everyone you would invite to your graduation open house. Remember the graphic design rules we discussed: the most important information needs to be the largest. Don't mix up too many different fonts. What is the size you are going to create? Are you going to create a postcard style? Is it going to be a flat front and back format? Is it going to be an 8.5 x 11 flyer? I can help you actually create your plan and really use them for your open house. I can help you purchase these at a VERY low cost. 

See you tomorrow. 
Mrs. Hanel

Senior Self Portraits

The seniors were assigned to create a large scale self portrait. Here are some of the examples. 


Watercolor in the Sprint Semester

Sprint Semester Watercolor Painting has been going so well. It's so nice to have a class full of students that enjoy painting and are sponges for learning. Here are some more of their beautiful work.

This was a painting a student created at the beginning of the school year. She wasn't a student in my class at that time, but she enjoyed coming in my room when she had her work completed in her online class and painting. She left it on the drying rack and forgot about it. 

This shows the changes she made after about a week into the Sprint Semester Watercolor painting class. Beautiful!
