Create original currency using Photoshop

Week 1 vocabulary

Magnetic lasso Quick mask Flatten PSD

Monday & Tuesday- Begin the class today with the eleven minute protocol. After that, I want to show you how to post your finished photos to a Google site. It's important to keep copies of your work in a portfolio so you can show people what you are capable of doing, and a website is a good option for an online portfolio.

When we wrap that up, I think I want to spend some of our class time talking about our next project. You will be creating your own country with its own slogan and its own currency. Here are some examples of currency from other countries. You will create a two sided document for your national currency. Just like the United States has dollars, I could make up a country called Dunlap Land and have a currency called shamoleans. You should come up with your own country and tell me about it here. If you want to start your work after that, we can get going.

Wednesday & Thursday- After you finish the eleven minute protocol, work on your currency. As you proceed, please keep in mind the following rubric, which will dictate your grade.

Points Requirement
10 The document is two-sided, each measuring 3" by 5", and uses a range of well-matched color
10 You have the name of your imaginary country on both sides of your bill
10 You have included a slogan or motto on your bill (like E Pluribus Unum or In God We Trust)
10 There are photos or graphics on both the front and the back of the currency
10 The denomination is shown of both sides of the bill
10 You have maintained consistency in your use of fonts, narrowing your selections to only a few
10 You have used creative elements in your work instead of recreating an existing currency
10 Your work is submitted on time
20 You have created a watermark effect (layer below the others with lower opacity)

Friday- We'll take the day to work on our currency projects in class.

Image Adjustment Desaturate Grayscale

Monday & Tuesday- We will begin the class period today with the eleven minute protocol. After that, I need to make sure that we all wrap up our last project. If you haven't shown me your currency, please do so before class ends today. In addition to that, I want to show you how to desaturate only one part of a photo. Please use this image for your lesson. I will post the content for the rest of the week after Parent/Teacher night.

Thursday- Because my A day students got off the hook on the eleven minute protocol due to testing, I have decided it's only fair to let you nice folks off the hook, too. So, let's get into the Photoshop... After we apply selective desaturation to a photo of your choice for a quick daily grade, we will move into a new lesson that will employ some interesting Photoshop tools. With Halloween approaching, what better time of the year is there to create an alien? Take a picture of yourself, your best friend, your sweetheart or someone famous (notice how I did NOT say your teachers?) and turn that person into an alien using these steps. It should be fun.

Monday & Tuesday- We start today as usual with our eleven minute protocol. After that, we diverge a bit. My A day students should be able to quickly select a photo and apply selective desaturation to it. My B day students did that last week. Testing always messes up the schedule a bit. B day students should be able to get into the lesson where we turn a person into an alien. You started that one last week. A day students should be getting to that today. Allow me to repeat the important parts of the instructions: Take a picture of yourself, your best friend, your sweetheart or someone famous (notice how I did NOT say your teachers?) and turn that person into an alien using these steps.

I'll be assigning a project grade when this one is all completed. The specific items I will look for are the color, the texture, the eyes, the alteration of existing facial features and the detailing on the image. Do all of that and you got yourself a 100.

Wednesday & Thursday- First, of course, the eleven minute protocol. After that, we continue on Photoshop. I'm not sure if all of my classes are in the same place, but we should be wrapping up the alien and starting on something new today. Using Photoshop, you will create pop art in the style of Andy Warhol. He painted, but we will use Photoshop. Some of his famous works were of Marilyn Monroe and Che Guevara. You will select your own subject for this lesson.

Monday- Please start your class time today with the eleven minute protocol. After that, I want you to wrap up the work on your pop art photos. I will grade your project based on your use of color and the clarity of your images.

Tuesday- Please CLICK HERE for all that you need to complete while I am away. I will be back Thursday. .

If you finish that, take some time to search for information about summer camps. Try to find camps that look fun or interesting. your next project will be about a camp you invent, so start thinking about it today.

Wednesday- After your eleven minute protocol today, I am going to have you all make text with a clipping mask effect. It's a cool lesson, and we will handle that before we get into our next project.

You will create two different advertisements for a summer camp. Since it's your summer camp, you can decide what kind of activities this camp will have and what kinds of kids should
attend. Take a look at these totally unique camps for a little inspiration. We will brainstorm a few ideas for really great camp activities, then you can put down a few details about your camp here. Once we have that nailed down, we'll start with the design. Your goal will be to make one ad that appeals to the young people you want to have at camp, and the other ad should appeal to their parents. What interests kids? What is of interest to parents? Think about the different target audiences as you prepare your ads.

Thursday- We'll start with the eleven minute protocol today, then move into the end of our pop art assignment. After we wrap that up, I want you to all get started on the summer camp advertisements we'll make together. Check out the instructions under Wednesday for your assignment.

Friday- Work on your advertisements during class today. Your work will be graded according to this rubric:

Points Requirement
10 Teen-centered advertisement contains graphics that appeal to its target audience
10 Teen-centered advertisement contains information that appeals to the target audience
10 Teen-centered advertisement contains contact information, dates and prices

Wednesday & Thursday- Please begin your day with the eleven minute protocol. After that, several of you will be wrapping up your summer camp advertiesements.

We will take the assesemtnt during class today, and that test will be located here.
