Tonight in my Digital Literacies class, Linda N. taught us how to use gimp photo editing--a free online photo editing tool similar to Photoshop. Linda showed us how to turn an image into a stencil that could screenprinted. I need a little practice, but I think it is pretty cool. I turned this photo of O. reading in his superman cape into a stencil like image with text. I can't wait to download this program onto my computer and try it with more images and a little more time.
Here are some tutorials that Linda directed us to:
update....I downloaded Gimp to my home computer and tried another image. This is really fun!
