Below are the examples we went over in class for your sketchbook assignment this week. Remember, you need a minimum of 8 frames, but most people will use around 12 or so. Also remember, keep the action simple and fun. Don’t go too complicated with the story, or else we’ll have to dial back.
Your first exercise/project in Adobe Animate is a series of four exercises to give you practice in using Tweens to animate objects in Animate. Below is the handout with instructions, and under that is a video of the 4 exercises. Under the video is a screen shot of all of the settings you need to change whenever you create a new Actionscript 3.0 Animate file.

Here is the handout with explanations and due dates for all the sketchbook assignments we will have for the rest of quarter 2. I will post examples of the one due next week shortly.

In preparation for any design/project, we always look at artwork done by other artists. It isn’t any different with WebSites.
Below I have attached a link to a worksheet I want you to fill out for class on Friday. Follow the instructions on the worksheet, and answer the questions I have given you. You can either print the worksheet out and write in your answers, or you can type them directly into the Word version of the handout. Please note – you need to download the WORD document version of the handout in order to be able to type your answers in – the PDF will not allow you to do so very nicely, if at all. This handout is due on Monday, and you will not have classtime on Monday to finish it, so get it done this weekend if you don’t do it during class today. (The only reason why you might not do it today is if you are finishing up your Surrealism portrait.)
Also, start thinking about what kind of a website you would want to design. What product would you want to sell? It can be real or imagined. More information on Monday!
Your Surrealism Portrait is due on Friday, and here is the evaluation, in case you need it:
- Surrealism Portrait Evaluation – 2016 (.DOC format)
Our next project is a surrealistic portrait assignment. Below is a copy of the handout, and a few examples of previous student work for this project (or one close to it). The last two images are ones I found on the internet that I liked because it shows you all the different photographs used to make the images.
Below are links for the Line Design Evaluation that I passed out in class. Use the Word Doc if you want to type your answers. Please use a different font (readable) or italics so that it is easy to differentiate your answer from the questions!
We’ve already done our first sketchbook project, but have a bunch more to do. Linked below is the list of sketchbook assignments for the rest of Quarter. Remember that I will be posting examples for each assignment every weekend before they are due, so make sure that you come back here to look at the examples before you start the assignments!

This week we started on our first project: Your own Font design. Below are the handouts from the beginning of the project, as well as examples of the project done by students previously. Remember that the font design sheet is your first sketchbook project, and the first page is due this upcoming Monday (September 19th).
