7th and 8th grade students are both starting out using digital tools like Photoshop to create altered images of themselves. 7th graders are creating the project shown above (although I am teaching it slightly different this time around) and 8th graders started using Tagxedo.
I also had a chance to show students the video that I made of our portrait party last week with blind contour drawings. It was fun to share the crazy designs and process we went through to get the creative results!
