Year 8 Media Arts

 

 

Semester 1
Photoshop Portfolio

During the first term of this year, we explored a range of photoshop techniques. We create everything from Fruit Monsters through to Zombies!! 

Term II explores digital music! We learn to use Sony Acid Pro to create a range of music and sound tracks for a range of audiences.

REMINDER: The school has a licence arrangement with Adobe.  It is possible to get the Creative Cloud, which includes Photoshop, downloaded to your home computer for around $10.00.  Want more information? Send a message via the contact form on the About page.

Things You Need to Know!

When you see the picture of the question mark it means a response from you is required.

 

These need to be uploaded to your school OneDrive and the link shared with me!

This icon means that there is a worksheet or some other file that you can download to help with the task I have set.

Sometimes it is a digital file, other times it may be something that you can print out.

When you see a box with the word LESSON in it – yup, you guessed it, it means it takes you to a new lesson.

When you see the END OF LESSON box – you are done and dusted!

 

Clicking on the END OF LESSON box to get back to the lesson menu.

The Lesson Menu tile will take you back to the Lesson’s page.  

This icon means that there is an extension activity for those of you who really want to get their teeth into the unit.

It doesn’t necessarily mean that the work is harder – just that more knowledge on a topic can be shared if you are interested.
