Yourself as an Avatar - Fun Photoshop Project

Such a fun project to build Photoshop skills! There are lots of tutorials online, but here's a good one.

Here's my personal example:


  1. I am not sure I could do this with the kids in the limited time they allow us in the labs. :(

    I love your blog and look forward to new posts. I teach 7th and 8th grade art, and I know how hard it is to run a blog without any feedback! Excellent job and keep it coming!

  2. Erin, thanks so much for commenting. I appreciate your feedback and you're right, it's hard to know if the things I am putting out there are helpful without comments.

    Regarding lab time - I've done this project with 6th-8th graders in about 90 minutes. I would prefer to spend more time than that, but students can certainly produce a finished product within that constraint.

    I will keep posting. Thanks for reading!!
