Art Educator Workshop: Advanced Digital Photography (Summer 2015)

Art Educator Programs

This class will focus on the creative possibilities within digital photography. For most teachers, updating skill sets can be a challenge, both technically and creatively, with the evolving state of hardware, software, and students' growing abilities. In this workshop, students will explore the advances made within the two main digital imaging programs: Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom, as well as develop creative and engaging assignments for a wide range of high school classrooms.

The class will explore ways to engage students, from using basic enhancements to more advanced digital compositions. Students will also focus on getting output correct, in both print and web-based media, and making it easier on students to have good outcomes in the digital darkroom.
