Description


Kids Learning Code. Photo-editing with Pixlr. Beginner workshop for kids 9-12.


Photos are a great way to tell stories, and using digital tools designers can create new worlds through photo editing!


Join us to learn the basic fundamentals of photo editing! Through this hands-on learning experience, learners will learn how to use Pixlr, a free browser based image editing software similar to Photoshop. They will learn all about retouching and superimposing objects into photos, by putting costumes onto animals (digitally, of course!), and creating new worlds through editing different scenes (and selfies)!


As a group, we’ll also learn about design theory and composition, and go through how to crop and resize photos, how to use the magic wand to remove objects, and how to put two photos together using layers. Pixlr’s easy-to-use interface will also encourage learners to continue playing and experimenting outside of the workshop!


Each Photo Editing with Pixlr workshop has the same flow, but different activities. Come and create new images every time!
