Playing Card Portraits – Students begin by drawing portraits on paper, and scanning them into the computer in this 4-6 day residency. Using Photoshop, students then manipulate their image, adding color, patterns and possibly text. The final result is copied, flipped and placed to create a “playing card” with the student’s imaginative image.
Salvador Dali Dreamscapes – Students will download images from the internet, learn about composition and put together the images using Photoshop to create a surreal scene in this 4-6 day residency. They will be taught to use a variety of tools, enhancements and filters to construct their images.
