Developing Creative Learners in K-12 Classrooms

Posted on Oct 29, 2014 by Pip Cleaves Last Activity on Oct 29, 2014

Creativity is no longer an elective, it's the future.  In a recent survey, 85% of people agreed that creative thinking is critical for problem solving in their career.* And with the challenges the world is facing today in our global economy, in our environment, and in social issues, the need for creative ideas has never been greater. Which is why we believe creativity must be a priority in education. Today’s students want to make a difference in the world.

Tessellations with Photoshop

Posted on Oct 27, 2014 by Tod Johnston Last Activity on Oct 27, 2014

To help students better understand transformations, have them create digital tessellations.   The tessellation starts with a square block in any color. By removing a section from one side of the square and placing on the opposite side, you'll create a shape that will tesselate across the screen. Repeat this process for the top and bottom your square and now your tessellation will fill the screen. Choose between two or more colors to differentiate between the shapes. This tessellation uses a gradient from the two shape colors as a background layer.  This idea for tessellations with Photoshop comes from Math Art by Collette Stemple.

Layered Photograhs for STEAM

Posted on Oct 27, 2014 by Tod Johnston Last Activity on Oct 27, 2014

To build the arts into STEM content, have students paint directly on top of an image or superimpose one image on top of another to support content learning or illustrate a concept. This example combines two images to show the skeleton inside of a frog.  Initially, much of the skeleton did not fit exactly into the image of the frog. Parts of the skeleton were selected, copied, and placed on new layers.  Then the Transform tool was used to resize, rotate, and place bones in their correct location. Finally, the modified parts of the original skeleton were masked and the opacity of the skeleton was placed at 50 percent.

Posted on Oct 18, 2014 by Tarek Bahaa El Deen Last Activity on Oct 18, 2014

Shutter Speed control the amount of action rendered in the photograph.In other words shutter speeds is control the “apparent motion” of things within the image. This is creative control that we can access to. The faster the shutter speed, the sharper the focus on your subject. On the other hand, a slower shutter speed will blur a moving object.This project is focus on how we can create a creative image depending on shutter speed only, without any image manipulate with any digital tools.

Magazine Cover using InDesign

Posted on Oct 17, 2014 by Christel Wilkie Last Activity on Oct 17, 2014

This is a tutorial I developed for my year 11 class last year.  It gives them the opportunity to apply some of the great layout options available in InDesign to create a Magazine cover.   The theme for this magazine is Xtream Sports as my students were mainly teenage boys from 16-17 years old.  The theme could easily be modified to suit whatever interests your clients have.  Just change the assets or get them to source their own.   I have uploaded the step-by-step tutorial as well as the assets folder and working document, all zipped.

Spring into Action with Photoshop

Posted on Oct 16, 2014 by Christel Wilkie Last Activity on Oct 19, 2014

This was a two hour workshop that I did recently with some visiting year 4 and 5 students.  We had a themed arts day and the students created animated GIFS celebrating spring.  Students were given some basic information about gathering resources from Google Images and then proceeded to learn a bit about Photoshop CS6 using layers and the animation timeline.  They used puppet warp to modify shapes and more advanced students also modified colours and added a few gradients. I have uploaded an example on one student's work and the PowerPoint presentation I used to take the students through the process.  You should be able to see the animation if you open it with any web browser.

The objective of this lesson is the creation of an animated virtual aquarium. Teacher will provide students with some images representing several kind of fishes to insert onto one / two photos portraying a blank aquarium habitat. Each fish image presents a increasing level of difficulty as regard as the removal of the background from the subject, counted by a score. In short students will be able to compose an image by adding elements coming from other photos; to use the layers palette; to select the correct layer for editing (copy, refining and pasting); to remove background pixels to crop the main subject on the source image in order to past it on the target image. Upon successful completion, students will be able to to cover the functionalities and capabilities listed below: 1) Select portions of images with all the selection tools provided by PS CS3 or better 2) Refine edges 3) Past isolated source images into a target image 4) Refine and enhancing the pasted images with some improvement...
