Art Exploration

I took a bunch of photos of my kids today with our digital camera.  I really wanted to catch photos of them doing “real life” things, which was a challenge.  I captured quite a few shots that I am happy with and downloaded them onto our computer.  Now I have to check out the different photo editing programs on our computer and see what I can do with the photos.  I want to create an interesting collage with my favorites.

I have been playing around with the We Feel Fine website today and showing it to my family.  It has been interesting to see what people are saying on the weblogs.  We narrowed it down just for Corvallis, which was fun.  My son is learning how to create animation with Java, so he really appreciated the self-organizing particle system.  My favorite was the Mounds page because it was fun to roll the mouse over each mound and jiggle it around!


Art Project Ideas

I have been brainstorming for the past few days to come up with ideas for my art project.  I really want to do something on the computer because I am truly appreciating all the new computer skills I have learned for this class.  My husband does fun things on the computer with photos and video, but I never have.  I am thinking that I want to take digital photos of my kids and see what I can create with them using the programs on our home computer.  It will be fun checking out the different programs we have and figuring out what I can create!
