This is a beginner level workshop for girls 8-13 years old and their parent/guardian/aunt/older sibling. Bring a special girl in your life to this workshop and learn together! 

This workshop will also cover 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 super imposing objects into photos, by putting costumes onto animals (digitally, of course!), and creating new worlds through editing different scenes (and selfies)! 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 girlsto continue playing and experimenting outside of the workshop!

Note: this workshop is BYOL so each parent or guardian/youth pair is required to bring one laptop on the day of the workshop as well as their own nut-free snacks. 

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! Each Photo Editing with Pixlr workshop has the same flow, but different activities. Come and learn to create new images every time!
