First, download the file below with directions on how to create your own weebly blogs. Read the directions carefully, and be sure to ask Mrs. Denison for help.
Once you have read though the directions, you may want to see the video below for more help, and don't forget to click "publish" when you are done!!! (If you are having trouble seeing the video, click on this link.)
Once you have created your weebly blog, I have designed an assignment to familiarize you with the free online editing software, Pixlr. We will be looking at the photographs of Annie Leibovitz and colorizing them with our own color schemes.
Follow the step-by-step instructions in the word document below in order to colorize your own Annie Leibovitz photograph. Make sure you re-save the work using your name so you can keep the work you have done.
Please note, Pixlr doesn't work with google chrome.
Below is the checklist for what needs to be on your weebly blog. Remember that this counts as 2 project grades. All blogs need to be updated by May 18th (or the day of your exam if you are a senior). Bonus points will be given to those that turn in your checklist early!! Please see Mrs. Denison for questions.
