PART II

Experimenting

Once the participants learned about the programs, they began to experiment with the many tools and skills they developed in new ways. The participants began to explore their own individual styles to express their ideas and share their personal preferences.

 

POSTER DESIGN

The participants used Adobe Illustrator to create posters for the class vernissage and learn about graphic design. The posters incorporate shapes, brushes, text, and colour to share their vision for the exhibition.

 
 

FOOD FAVOURITES

This project, created with Photoshop, demonstrates the use of layering techniques with a top-down aerial view of some of the participant's favourite foods, including pizza and hamburgers.

 
 

SELF-PORTRAIT

This assignment was a collage that allowed the participants to practice layering and combine various skills. The participants learned how to use different distortion techniques such as warping and pixelating an image to transform themselves. Additionally, the participants used filters to artistically alter their appearance and create colourful self-portraits.
