Overall, the students are doing great work. They already created a second collage, this time using their own images. Very interesting and varied results. They also wrote one-page reflections on their process, and most of them feel like they are learning a lot, enjoying the mostly new digital art world and though frustrated at times, they keep learning new things and getting past their difficulties. We spent about half of day 4 sharing the computer screen and reviewing their collages. Most people were willing to share their process when asked. Some of them found new tools, or ways of using tools even I was unaware of.

In the last half hour of class, I reviewed the use of grids and guides and assigned a tabloid sized poster they need to complete in one week. We have off labor day, so they have to find time to get this done without the benefit of more class time.
