Digital Imaging Project01: Digital Collage in Photoshop

OBJECTIVES: To understand collage as art techinique using digital tools.
Create 9"x15" CMYK 300dpi PSD digital collage using scanner. Students explore everyday objects and select one that will become "obsessing object." They research and evaluate the works of visual artists who have used everyday or mundane objects as stimuli for artworks. Students create a visual folio that records their observations and explorations of their objects focusing on expressing their emotional responses in various media. Students challenge and deconstruct meanings that may be associated with their objects and find new ways of representing their physical, emotional and conceptual characteristics. They make, display and appraise images and objects that express and communicate their responses to "obsessing object."
