5th graders explored typography, applying basic concepts of graphic design.
Reflection, By Noah R.
"I learned that art isn’t just about painting and writing, it’s also about experimenting on the computer."
In Art I learned about a lot, and one of my favorite things was learning about fonts. I learned about kerning and leading, serifs and san serifs. A serif is a letter with a (foot), a san serif is a letter without a foot. (A) is a san serif because it has no foot, and a serif has a foot or (tail). We had to make a commercial about serifs and san serifs. A place you can find serifs and san serifs is in a magazine. My favorite part was learning about different fonts. There are so many different fonts that are cool. I learned that art isn’t just about painting and writing, it’s also about experimenting on the computer. You can do kerning and leading on the computer to. I have probrably tried kerning and leading without knowing what it was. I think the tricks are very helpful to understand the meanings of kerning and leading. Ms. Palefsky showed us so many different examples that looked awesome. In conclusion, I learned a lot this session in art.
