Photoshop Tutorials

I find myself making a lot of tutorials for my students. Most of these are modified from what I've found on the internet already, but I've tried to break it down as much as possible, for my students who have never opened up the program at all. Feel free to use and share! And if there are any corrections or recommendations, I'd love to hear your feedback, as I am a photoshop novice myself.

Color Mixing Experiment

This was a nice and quick lesson we did to introduce students to color mixing and the color wheel. They were asked to make a stencil, retrace it 6 times with overlapping, and mix the colors where appropriate.

Line Design

After a review/ intro (!) of the Elements of Art, we focused on line. Students drew a contour line drawing of an image of their choice, and then added line in for texture and form.
