Welcome to the online art studio, aka the wired atelier*!

This blog is designed for students and families in Allison Fuller-Mulloy's SMHS Art Classes. It is a site for posting our daily work and homework (IWs) each week, ideas and images to explore further, reminders and due dates. I hope this blog will help students by reinforcing the week's major ideas and activities, giving make-up work for absentees, and providing families a look into the atelier every day!

CD Cover Designs... Week 11

Students played the role of graphic designers this week as they took on the task
 of redesigning existing CD covers by their favorite bands. After analyzing previous album artwork by the bands, students selected one album cover to redesign. Students not only focused on interesting typography, images, and layout, but also on creating a mood or feeling that would inform the consumer about the music before listening. 
This lesson required students to communicate important information 
about the music while creating an interesting visual design.
