Thursday 28th of July- Part 2

Yesterday consisted of Colour Mania! The teams have started working together to colour in the images on a colouring program called gimp. Tablets have been used to transfer the pictures that were hand drawn onto the computer to be coloured. In addition, Advertising has commenced, as there will be an article in the College Crow (student run, school magazine). There will also be an assembly announcement and a reading of the book with Evandale in the near future. Good Job everybody and keep up the good work!

This is the colour palette for the people.
Save this image and open it in gimp (this will be in a new window, if you already have the other image open) Use the eyedropper tool to select colours.

Lucy’s day in the city- Part 1

Thursday 22nd of July

Today we continued with the storybook project. The writing Team had finished writing the Story for the book. Here is a quick summary:

Lucy and her family go to the city. They wake up and start to get ready. Then they travel to the city by train. They play in Hyde Park around the fountain and look at the ducks. They then go to the museum to look at dinosaurs. Then they catch a bus to the botanic gardens and have a picnic. After, they decide to go to the opera house. They can’t go inside the theatre as there is a show on so instead go to Luna park. They play on rides then they are tired so catch a train home. They had a great day.

The Drawing committee completed allocating scenes to draw and commenced drawing.

The Technology Sector started planning outlines and designs for the book and they also created a Blog for the project, to advertise it.

Advertisement & Publicity Commission commenced planning and brainstorming ideas for promoting the book.
