Explore the book format as a vehicle for different types of visual narratives, combining digital tools with book design to develop creative concepts. Adobe Photoshop is used as the primary image-making software with InDesign for page layout. Participants work with text and image sequentially and narratively within a variety of book structures. Participants should bring a digital camera and have some previous experience with Photoshop. Classroom applications for elementary and high school students are addressed.
