Q1: ACO 3.0 - Art and Design

GOAL: You will create a PhotoShop series of 3 images (1 still life, 1 landscape, 1 portrait). The still life will be a line drawing done by hand, the landscape will use a specific photoshop process, and the final portrait will be a creative mix of both processes. 
Week 7-8 DIGITAL PORTFOLIO REFLECTION:First, what Elements of Art are used in your digital Still Life painting? Describe how you specifically used each element. Explain the relationship between the size of your texture brush and controlling the value scale of your image. What part of the digital painting process do you find most enjoyable and which part do you find monotonous or challenging and why? (6 Sentence minimum)
Next, explain where your landscape image was taken. Using the Elements of Art as keywords, describe the similarities and differences between your finished landscape image and your finished still image. Reflect on your process... Did you stay with the more basic beginning tutorial or were you able to refine the image using advanced filter techniques? How did your technique affect the outcome? (6 Sentence minimum)
Finally, tell us a little about the portrait photo you are using... Where was it taken? Who is in it? What does it mean to you? Explain how this final image uses all of the Elements of Art. Lastly, conclude with a summary of your critique results... Do you agree with them, why or why not? (6 Sentence minimum)
REQUIRED IMAGES:LastF_Still.jpg at the top above first paragraphLastF_Landscape.jpg above second paragraph LastF_Portrait.jpg above your final paragraphScreenshot of Critique results under last paragraph before tags
TAGS:ACO 3.1 Analyze how elements and principles of design in various forms of media are applied to communicate to a specific audience. Elements of Art: Space, Line, Color, Shape, Texture, Form, Value. ACO 3.2 Critique how the effective integration of elements and principles of design within a variety of medium impact target audiences. Gestalt Theory: Similarity, Continuation, Closure, Proximity, Figure and groundACO 3.3 Apply elements and principles of design to clarify, focus, or enhance a message or concept for a target audience. Principles of Design: Scale, Proportion, Unity, Balance, Harmony, Contrast, Repetition, Variety, Emphasis)

Design differs from art in that it has to have a purpose. Visually, this functionality is interpreted by making sure an image has a center of attention, a point of focus. The principles of design are the rules a designer must follow to create an effective composition that cleanly delivers a message to the audience.

Maybe you’re thinking, ‘But wait! I thought design was all about creativity?’ If you’re an entrepreneur or designer who’s just starting out, you might be tempted to go wild and combine the first five typefaces and colors that catch your eye, believing you’re creating something fresh and new. like you think about something and it just pops up and you take time and patience

You will probably find yourself with a design that is muddled, unfinished, or well, just plain ugly Graphic design, like any discipline, adheres to strict rules that work beneath the surface to make the work stable and balanced. If the work is missing that balance, it will be weak and ineffective. Because art is not about rushing and being impatient. its about taking your time and being patient with the art and what you think about

ACO 5.0 - Coding Altino Cars

Altino autonomous cars are manufactured by Ocean it's partners, SaeOn, in South Korea. SaeOn originally introduced these code-able cars to the school curriculum in the City of Daejon. Today, that city has become the number-one coding district in all of Korea. Ocean it is a major advocate for bringing coding to schools around Hawaii - and is doing so through training with Altino autonomous cars. Partnering with Kamehameha Schools at the start of 2017, our hope is that computer coding can be integrated with curriculums around Hawaii by training our teachers to code. Drawing inspiration from South Korea, where coding will soon be a required part of students' curriculum, Ocean it is using SaeOn's autonomous cars to train teachers so that every student in Hawaii could then be exposed to computer programming.

By the summer of 2017, the first Altino cohort was implemented for local teachers to learn programming, while also providing three professional development credits. Ocean it also focuses on building lesson plans around coding in teachers' classrooms, no matter the subject being taught. For instance, geography teachers can have their students use programming to demonstrate the sailing routes forged during the age of sail. Through the end of 2017 eight total cohorts were held, with many more planned throughout 2018.

ACO 6.0 - Proprietary Information

First, who is the FCC and what do they do? What is copyright infringement and what are the legal consequences of using material without permission? How can you get permission to use copyrighted materials? Explain "Fair Use" and give two specific examples of using copyrighted material without permission that is legal (6 Sentence minimum).

Federal law and state common laws confer exclusive rights of ownership to trademark owners, owners of registered patents and copyright owners. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office administers federal patent and trademark statutes, while the Copyright Office administers the copyright statutes. The owner of a federally registered copyright has a right to use his written work during his natural lifetime plus 70 years. This includes the exclusive right to use his copyrighted work without unauthorized copying, borrowing or distribution by an unauthorized third party. The federal government gives copyright owners these exclusive rights to further intellectual thinking and creative arts.
If you infringe upon someone else's intellectual property rights by using the author's copyright without his permission, you may be guilty of copyright infringement. You may be able to assert an defense excusing your unauthorized use of copyrighted material in certain situations. Typically, claiming that you did not know of the existence of someone else's copyrighted material does not excuse you from using his copyrighted material without his consent.
Then, explain what confidentiality is and give three examples of information that you must keep private. What impact does social media have on confidential information? Explain your stance regarding censorship... how does it relate to the 1st Amendment: freedom of speech, and the 5th Amendment: people's right to privacy? (6 Sentence minimum).

Finally, upload a .GIF animation of your finished Cinemagraph showing smooth looping motion to the top of your blog post. Be sure to source and apply proper credit to the original creator of the image.

ACO 6.1: Analyze the use of copyright and proprietary information in arts and communication to facilitate responsible, legal and ethical behavior.
ACO 6.2: Examine ethical issues in arts and communications to make appropriate decisions related to clients, co-workers and society.

ACO 2.1 Analyze how shifts in market affect changes to media and design.
ACO 2.2 Evaluate how changing communication needs of a market are addressed by media and design.
ACO 2.3 Propose media and design solutions that address the changing needs in global markets

A market is one of the many varieties of systems, institutions, procedures, social relations and infrastructures whereby parties engage in exchange. While parties may exchange goods and services by barter, most markets rely on sellers offering their goods or services in exchange for money from buyers. 

An actual or nominal place where forces of demand and supply operate, and where buyers and sellers interact (directly or through intermediaries) to trade goods, services, or contracts or instruments, for money or barter.
Markets include mechanisms or means for (1) determining price of the traded item, (2) communicating the price information, (3) facilitating deals and transactions, and (4) effecting distribution. The market for a particular item is made up of existing and potential customers who need it and have the ability and willingness to pay for it.
