2020 has been one crazy year. I have been teaching online since March 2019 to my wonderful kiddos and have been busy adapting and reformating everything to use in Canvas. Although we can’t be together in person my students have been doing an amazing job.
I have had to change the structure of my CTE design class. Instead of working on MacBooks and Adobe Photoshop in the classroom they are using PhotoPea and Chrome-books at home. I have to say PhotoPea has been a pleasant surprise, while not as good as Photoshop, the skills they learn will translate easily over into Photoshop and the students have a free program to use anytime they wish at home.
I wanted to share my students Illustrated Words Project. In this project students created a themed composition with a focus on text. This project explores layer modes, layer styles and layer order to achieve different blending effects. Students also explored the text tool and learn advanced techniques to edit typography as well as how to download and import different font styles.
