Preparing for Success

To begin today’s class I can:

  • I can open my visual journal (send link)
  • I can join the Google classroom.
  • I can bookmark the classroom blog.
  • I can create a Lightroom catalog.

What was the most challenging part of setting up your blog yesterday?

Why is using a visual journal important?

Sketching Rocks (analogue)!

Create a mission statement by answering the following questions:

  • What do I want to do in this class?
  • How will I achieve it?
  • Why am I doing it?

In a new visual journal post write out your mission statement.

The Journey Begins

“If you want to learn something, I can’t stop you. If you don’t want to learn it, I cannot teach you.” — Wynton Marsalis

Classroom agenda:

  • Introductions
  • Bookmarking classroom blog
  • Logging into Google classroom

Learning targets:

  • I can create a visual journal using WordPress
  • Find a photograph that speaks to you and add it to your new WordPress visual journal. Write a short paragraph about why you selected the image and what is it about the image you like.

Congratulations!

I encourage each and every one of you to continue your creative journey and to take a moment each day to appreciate and enjoy the subtle visual moments you see. Make a picture if the moment speaks to you and share your unique vision of the world through the art of photography.
