Digital Painting on Pixlr

So excited to post some amazing digital paintings made by my 7th and 8th grade students. This semester has been the first year we have been able to offer a Graphic Arts and Design class at my middle school and it has been an incredible experience!  

First, on my teacher website, students selected a high resolution photograph of an famous painting. Then, after watching the tutorial video on my website, students began their creations in pixlr editor. I love how easy this is, and the results are so amazing! Some tools such a burn, dodge, smudge, and sponge I didn't discuss in my tutorial video, but they are great tools that can help achieve realistic effects.

This is 100% a digital painting! yeah... i know!
