Color and Draw in Photoshop



In this lesson, students will learn to use Photoshop as a photo-editing tool to alter and manipulate personal images and draw an element of the environment. Students will combine images that have not coexisted before their digital manipulation. They will (also) look at the various work of digital artists such as Martina Lopez and choose a personal image, edit the image by varying contrast, hue, saturation, or by changing size, scale, proportion, and/ or by applying filters to change images from a realistic mode to an artistic / imaginary rendition.
