In order to create these moving masterworks, students first went to the Artsonia galleries of our elementary schools. After selecting which image they would like to animate. They copied and pasted the work into a new Photoshop image. Using the quick selection tool, the clone stamp, and the motion workspace, students navigated between layers to create looping images. To save the files so they will move once they are uploaded online, students went to file>save for web and then save the GIFs to turn in on Schoology for a grade.
Overall, it has been really fun to see students learn this method and the amount of interest in turning other student's works into something new.
It was a perfect feeder lesson into our final project, "Something Old, Something New," which we also started this past week.
