Collage theme ideas see below for examples:
What inspires you?
Colorado or Denver inspired (can be 15w x 9h inches)
Narrative- Tell a story with your collage
Surreal - Odd combination of imagery like a dream
Size: 11 x 17 inches (vertical) or 17 x 11 inches (horizontal)
Resolution: 300 ppi
- You are required to have at LEAST 20 layers that utilize a combination of imagery, text, adjustment layers, filters, opacity, layer mask cut-outs, etc.
- Consider using original material (drawings, your photos, you can scan most anything!)
- Using text is a good way to add message and texture to your collage
Keep as a Photoshop document (.psd) so that I can see your layers and turn in to Dropbox. We will be working on this project for about 2 weeks or so.
Student Learning Objective: Students will be able to create an original work of art using borrowed and original images by learning to combine and manipulate imagery in Photoshop.
