Digital Flowers

As the final project of the year in fifth grade, I showed the students some of the basics in Photoshop Elements. We first gathered inspiration from Georgia O’Keefe’s artwork, and applied it to a challenging digital art project. I had students alter a single high-resolution photograph of a flower as their subject. Then, students layered the flower to create an O’Keeffe-like appearance. For a final touch, each fifth grader experimented with a background layer to enhance their flower. This was the first time I tried this project, and I must say, it was a lot of fun!
