This assignment is both a Photoshop and a writing assignment. Students must use one their own photos or a photo from online and alter it to mimic Impressionism. The instructions are deliberately simple because the only way to learn Photoshop, is to experiment with, play and use Photoshop. The students are directed to write how they did what they did in Photoshop and write two additional paragraphs on the Impressionism questions asked in the assignment. I firmly believe that graphic designers have to write as well as they design.
