Ceramics 1 will be taught again next school year 2020-2021!! Its super-fun, so sign up if you love ceramics!
Below is the checklist for our weebly blog. Be sure all images are cropped to view the entire image without extraneous background. No phone shadows should be visible and each image should have a title.
All Blogs should be completed by May 15th. (May 10th for seniors)
Today we will be working on taking photographs of your artwork and uploading these to your blog. Remember, having a completed blog will count as 2 project grades at the end of the semester, so don't fall behind!!
For those of you who are new, or were out the last day we worked on the weebly blogs, you may want to check out my previous post here . It includes the list of what we previously needed to upload, some tips on taking photographs, as well as a short video on how to upload images to your website. If you need instructions on how to create your blog, download the file at the top of this post.
For today, you will need to take photographs of all your completed projects, sketchbooks, and completed altered books. For a complete list, see below.

On the "my art" page, you should have the following: (the list will grow as we do more!)
On the "sketchbook' page, you should have the following:

Create a clever, creative "box" that is at least 6 inches tall or wide. Bonus points for those that are not cube shaped!
