Photoshop Converts Cake

ctrl-z Shalanah Backus Student Cake

Commercial Art is perhaps my favorite class to teach. Students learn about Photoshop, design and Illustrator. It could not be more fun. I also was blessed in having a great group of students, who became huge fans of the computer programs we were using. It was one of their birthdays and another classmate created this AWESOME cake with “Ctrl – Z” on it. It is the “undo” button on Photoshop, Illustrator and many other programs. Love it.

Commercial Art Website

I’m happy to announce that I’ve created a website for my Commercial Art class at Waconia High School. This is the first year I’m trying to go all online with the class projects, galleries and calendar. Check it out! It is being updated weekly and sometime this week I’ll be putting up student work galleries!
