Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I hope you enjoy this art Valentine that I Photo-shopped especially for you.
It's funny how one thing leads to another isn't it?
Middle School students requested scratch art when I polled them last week. And we're about to get started when I happened across Nicole Dalesio's PhotoShop for Kids of All Ages. Her tutorials are tops! Things being as the are, digital scratch art caught my eye and I had to give it a go. Super simple and a great "getting started with Photoshop" project for kids. Basically, open a new file. Go to "layers" and select "new fill layer" select gradient. Choose the gradient you want. Go to "layers" select "new fill layer" select black. Use the eraser tool to scratch. It's that easy.
Do you include digital art projects in your lessons?
Why or why not?
I'm going to try this one with kids this month.
Lots of other great projects on Nicole's site and I hope you'll check them out.
