This project combines drawing, photography, and Photoshop. Students will create an imaginary scene of a person interacting with 3 imaginary creatures (invented by them) in a unique environment. The image created will tell a story, in which the student will write about at the end of the project (as laid out in the included lesson plan). This lesson will give students an understanding of ways to incorporate both drawing and technology into one cohesive art piece.
This is always a fun and playful project that gets even the most unengaged students excited about their art!
