8 Crayons of Photoshop

I created a spark page to introduce my approach to teaching Photoshop in the classroom, a process I joking refer to as the 8 Crayons of Photoshop. The joke is that I only give the students these “8 crayons” (some very basic guidance), but by the end of the semester I expect them to paint Picasso with it. The basic dynamic of this approach is to provide students with just enough know-how so that they can play with the software, interact with the interface, and, more importantly, ask questions (and learn how to ask questions in the language of Photoshop). Thus, I cover canvas set up, basic tools, operative metaphors, filters, effects, and the like. To read the full post, visit the link below:
