Photo Editing with Pixlr workshop. It’s targeted to girls, but any kids 8-13 are welcome!

Pixlr is similar to Photoshop, but it’s free, and they have web-based and mobile apps – really great for those interested in getting started with photo editing! Kids can edit photos expertly for social media sharing, website projects, and more!
Why learn about photo editing?

Photos are a great way to tell stories, and using digital tools designers can create new worlds through photo editing!

Join us to learn the basic fundamentals of photo editing! Through this hands-on learning experience, girls will learn how to use Pixlr, a free browser-based image editing software similar to Photoshop. Girls will learn all about retouching and superimposing objects into photos, by putting costumes onto animals (digitally, of course!), and creating new worlds through editing different scenes (and selfies)! Each Photo Editing with Pixlr workshop has the same flow, but different activities. Come and create new images every time!
As a group, we’ll also learn about design theory and composition, and go through how to crop and resize photos, how to use the magic wand to remove objects, and how to put two photos together using layers. Pixlr’s easy-to-use interface will also encourage girls to continue playing and experimenting outside of the workshop!
