Choose an image of a contemporary celebrity or political figure and use Photoshop to manipulate the graphic, transporting your chosen subject to another era in time.

I choose a picture of Michelle Obama for my final project.

I wish I could see your image of Michelle Obama. That would inspire my students! Great idea for an assignment.

Hi Mavis,

There is no attachment for the project. Steps?

Create a project for your classroom that incorporates image manipulation (viewing and critiquing manipulated images, manipulating historical or political images, or some other example that reasonated with you from this workshop).

Upload your project to the Adobe Education Exchange so other members can learn from your work.

Are you planning to upload this project?
