PROJECT 1 / MONTAGE
This class is an introduction to photoshop. Meaning that many of the students who register for this class have had little to no experience using the program. They begin the class by working through a book and learning the layout of the program, then they are introduced to projects that allow them to practice those tools. The first project is learning to combine multiple images into one image. This class was an extremely small class of about 6 students, but it is my belief that even with a small group of students there was a good turn out on projects.

PROJECT 2 / aLBUM COVERS
Project two related heavily to the first project but now the students look at composition and adding type to image. A good majority of students in this class, developed their own hand design typography, having no experience with typography yet.
PROJECT 3 / pAINTED ILLUSTRATIONS - NATURALISTIC AND STYLIZED
This assignment was the final project in the course in which I developed a project that let students engage in using the brush tool to pain in photoshop. They had two steps. Create an image that is close to the original picture and a second that is stylized by them.
