So I am already hard at work in order to have everything ready for this semester's Art Show. Been putting in many hours after school and during weekends. Because I basically have to help 250-300 students complete projects, create videos (the school I work at is big at involving technology as much as possible), select projects and mount everything pretty much by myself, it is essential for me to begin, at least, a month in advance. Aside from helping students finish up projects, I find myself doing everything else after work. Between grading, planning and preparing supplies for artwork, I have almost no time during the day.
The first thing I do is work on project titles, which this year, were a total of 18 (each grade does between 3-4 projects that can be selected for the exhibit). This is the way I make them. I download some cool fonts, prepare pdfs in Illustrator with 2-3 letters per page, print them out, cut them (I the whole stack of papers home and work on cutting them during free moments), and tape together two 65x50 cm. colored cardboards to paste them on. Aside from the project titles, I include the grade level and a description of each project which includes the techniques used as well as the Elements of Art that were studied during the process. These titles also will contain the QR codes that will essentially link to the videos of students explaining about their projects. I record these videos myself during class time and edit them in iMovie.
So much to do still! But I'm excited and looking forward to creating a better and better event each year.
