Week 1- Landscape Photography

Spring has sprung! Read the article below and really study the imagery. This photographer manages to take pieces of nature we would pass by without a thought and make them really beautiful.

https://www.npr.org/sections/pictureshow/2020/02/16/794046607/a-photographers-guide-to-slow-seeing-the-beauty-in-everyday-nature

 

Activity: Each day go out for 20 minutes and photograph something new that you discover each day. If you have access to Photoshop, use it to blur your background to help the viewer focus on one aspect of your photograph.

 

Week 2- Andy Goldsworthy

Andy Goldsworthy is a site-specific artist and photographer. He creates pieces in nature using the elements within that specific site. He then photographs the image. Read and look through the article below.

https://www.boredpanda.com/land-art-andy-goldsworthy/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=organic

 

Activity: Find the most interesting nature spot you can. Maybe it’s your yard, a park, an alley. Using what is around you, construct a mini-sculpture reminiscent of Goldsworthy. Photograph your creation each day of the week to see how it changes day to day.

 

Week 3- Mirror Portraits

Read and look at the various examples in the article below. There are also many other examples online. Take a mirror of some kind outside and experiment with interesting ways to capture your portrait. You could also photograph someone else in your household. Think about lighting, shadow, and angle when composing these pictures.

High School Music Lessons & Resources By: Mrs. Jaroma

 

Intro – Okay since we are all to stay at home during this time let’s make the most of it. I would like for students to start a music journal. This does not need to be anything formal it is for the students at this time.

 

Week #1 -

 

Do your regular stretches everyday if you can. (These are good for you!)

Click on the link below for some warm-ups. You can also do the warm-ups we have been doing in class.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvO7VvVMFSI&list=RDT-8gt1lWZFY&index=4

 

For starters you can take any or all of the pieces we were working on and sing along with them. Also, in a music journal. Write about what these songs mean to you.

I’ll Be There

It Don’t Mean a Thing Wade In the Water Listen

 

Week #2 – Start with your stretches as well as warm-ups. List 3-5 songs that inspire you or raise up your spirits. They must have clean lyrics and be school appropriate. If you have access, make a list of the links for yourself. (We may share these at some point!) These songs should also be a part of your musical journal. In this journal list why, these songs are important or what they mean to you.

 

Also, ask those around you or if you are texting (because Mrs. Jaroma can’t take your cell phones since you are not in class) what songs inspire them. List these in your music journal as well.

 

Week #3 - Stretches and warm-ups. This warm-up is seems pretty fun.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIkIGmtN_1Q

 

Listen to some fun music and sing along. It can be from a Disney movie, music from musicals – the clip below is from the “Annie” soundtrack, Victorious Soundtrack, Hairspray – You Can’t Stop the Beat or something that makes you want to sing out and get up and dance. Again, have lots of fun. If you have a sibling sing these songs with them. In your journal list what songs you like the best, how they make you feel or think and why.

 

Annie

Listen to this podcast. There are three parts.

https://www.wnycstudios.org/podcasts/radiolab/episodes/211119-colors

Related activity: Using any colored pencils you have, try to create as many different colors as you can by using the layering process we practiced 2nd quarter. How many kinds of blue can you make? Red?

Week 2

Watch the tutorial below and try and create the same kind of op art image. To do so, you will need a ruler and some colored pencils. Pay close attention to your values (light, medium, and dark) so that your op art piece has the desired movement when you are done.

Journalism I-IV

Here is an interesting activity that encompasses what we do as journalists. I won’t be grading this but we will be sharing our experiences when we return so this would be a good start.

 

Of course, if you volunteered to help with finishing the yearbook, please focus on that first (see remind for details). Stay safe and be well, Allen

 

PATH 1: Quick Take

Tell us your story. Your goal is to produce a 1-3 minute video or written piece of your life during the pandemic.

STEP 1: ASSESS YOUR SITUATION.

Put pen to paper and write down all the ways in which coronavirus has affected you. Use this to get your thoughts together and think about your friends and family members, too. Are you stuck at home? Scared for yourself or loved ones? Worried about your job? Grieving cancelled events?

If the virus hasn’t impacted you directly, why not? What are you hearing?

STEP 2: STORYBOARD YOUR PERSONAL NARRATIVE

On paper or with your computer/electronic device, use the following prompts and questions to create the BEGINNING, MIDDLE and END of your piece:

Describe who you are (age, grade), where you live, and where you go to school.

Are there cases of coronavirus in your community? What do you know?

At what point did coronavirus become a serious concern for you, your family, school?

How has this global pandemic impacted you directly? Explain using specific examples - such as - your school cancelled games, dances, classes, etc.. Start when it first effected you up to now. Check out this example from NewsHour producer Adam Raney and his experience with coronavirus after coming back from a trip to Italy.

 

Example - Adam Raney instagram

 

STEP 3: PRODUCE YOUR STORY

After you have gathered or written all of the information that you want to include, choose the medium you’d like to use to share your story (VIDEO, GOOGLE SLIDES, GOOGLE DOC, ETC) You can send it to me for feedback or save it until we meet again.

 

Above all be creative and really apply this to yourself. The next suggested assignment will be connected to doing a virtual interview of another person.

 

STAY SAFE AND BE WELL, ALLEN
