Making sure you are connected. Saving work. Checking blog.

1. Making sure you are connected.   Did you create your blog and send me the URL?  I'm going to make sure I have you connected so that I can receive your work.

Lesson in posting your art work.    You're best option is PNG format although Jpeg's work too, sometimes.

2.  Are you checking the blog first thing when you come in?

3.  Remember, you are responsible for knowing where we are in class and what is due.  You do this by checking the blog.  Even if you miss class you can still check the blog.  So using the excuse..."I didn't know" is not a valid excuse.    
REMEMBER, THESE COMPUTERS WILL NOT SAVE YOUR WORK.  YOU MUST UPLOAD ALL YOUR WORK TO GOOGLE DRIVE.  EVERYTHING.   EVERYTHING.   DID I SAY EVERYTHING?
