Back to School Class building: making a personal CLASS PUZZLE as a metaphor for the class

Back to School Class building: making a personal CLASS PUZZLE as a metaphor for the class

This is an idea for an activity to do with a class to strengthen the class spirit and unity within the class. Full instructions are included, but it comes down to this: Students each colour a piece of a class puzzle. When all the pieces are put together, the puzzle is a beautiful tool for a class discussion: By asking questions in a group discussion, lead the students to understanding the metaphor of this puzzle: Look at this beautiful colourful creation, that we made as a group effort! The puzzle symbolizes our class. Each of you is a very special piece of this puzzle. The puzzle, and thus the class, is unique, because each of you is unique. Everyone has their own way talents, their own way of adding colour to the class! We all need each other to make the class complete: with just one puzzle piece missing or not fitting in properly with the others, the whole puzzle wouldn’t be complete. We are each different - we have different colours -, but what binds us is the class itself and what we share - the black marker lines! We need to do our best to fit together, give each other space. TOGETHER we are this class!

Into Graphics - Composition

Into Graphics - Composition

In this unit we explore composition and balance in images. To do this we investigate: • what is good composition in an image • the techniques used to achieve effective composition • visual weight • forms of balance: symmetric, asymmetrical, radial and mosaic • forms of symmetry: reflective, rotational, and translational • photographic balance: color, tonal and conceptual balance • the rule of thirds • improving balance using cropping in Photoshop. The concepts introduced will be for photographs, but they apply equally to any other visual medium – from painting to web pages.

Into Graphics - Colour

Into Graphics - Colour

An understanding of colour theory is basic in design work. It is important to know which colours work well with others and how colour influences the mood of a design by appealing to emotions, evoking feelings, or stirring memories. In this unit we review the basics of colour. To do this we investigate: • how colour is perceived by the eye • reflective and emitted light • making a colour wheel in Illustrator • primary, secondary and tertiary colours • additive and subtractive colour and their relation to RGB and CYMK colours • colour temperature • tone, shade and tint • colour combination schemes: complementary, analogous, triad, split-complementary, tetratic and square • colour moods.
