Lesson 1: Celebrity Spawn

Computer Art, Photoshop- grades 9-12.

This lesson has been borrowed from my professor (Brian Sikes) at DePaul University. I used this as a jumping off point to see what my students already knew from their fabulous teacher, so that I could figure out their skill level before pushing them into new and exciting projects (and tools!).
In this lesson, I gave them 4 days to take images of two celebrities (or of themselves) and combine them to create a spawn offspring. They needed to use layers, blending tools, adjustments (color, contrast, etc) in order to create a 50/50 new person. I was very pleased with their skills and creativity!
Check out all the crazy photos!
