Teaching PhotoshopMix to younger students

Lesson Plan Published 4/4/16 Last updated on 5/16/18

In my media arts class, it was all about composites. While the older kids were being introduced to Photoshop on the desktop (more of that in the next post) I still wanted the younger kids to create the same kind of effect on an iPad. Enter PhotoshopMix, a fantastic free app from Adobe that does just that.

In this video I go through how I introduced the app to the kids, with some tips and tricks. The example was putting a student inside a computer monitor.

I also have another blog - "Confessions of a Media Arts Teacher" which goes into depth how I set up a Media Arts curriculum for a whole primary school specialist subject from K-6. Please visit and subscribe as well.
