In this workshop, students in grades 5-8 will learn how to put a new background on their photographs, as well as some other fun features and effects using free computer software (PIXLR) and a smartphone app called PhotoLayers.
They will discover the impact made by editing photos and how the techniques are used in marketing and advertising. Come edit yourself into a beautiful winter wonderland!
Please create a freePIXLRaccount prior to the workshop. We will provide stock photos to edit, but the student may have their own photos as well. Laptop, Mac, PC, or Chromebook with internet access required.
