Using Photoshop in Visual Arts classes
I'm interested to hear how other people use Photoshop in Visual Arts classes. I am the Leader Of Creative Arts at my school (old terminology read Coordinator) and have been working at integrating Photoshop into our programs to meat mandatory ICT requirements, but Photoshop can be used in so many ways as part of an artistic process rather than an end in itself, so I'd love to hear the experience of others. If you check my resources you'll find a number of tutorials which hare used in both Art and Photography classes, but which have strong links to studying artists practices, so you can see where we've been going.
We have a 1 to 1 laptop rollout and have just moved over to Macbook Airs (Yrs 7 & 10) from Lenovo PC's (due to weight and battery life considerations) We are using CS5 with a site licence for the Master Collection on the Macs, some of the Lenovo's have CS3, so I'm constantly dealing with multiple versions (and I use CC myself to complicate matters)
What are others doing?
What is your experience?
What IT set up are you using?
Looking forward to seeing what you have to say.
