Children who express a penchant for design, photography, or any other type of visual art is a sign of wonderful things to come. This means your child is interested in learning how to harness the driving aesthetics of a visual-based world.
Children who express this desire early on should try creating art in Photoshop.
Visual Problem Solving
By implementing photo manipulation, your child will develop unique problem solving skills that will help them maneuver through reality-rooted concepts. They will learn that in addition to the use of software tools, intuition, experience, and planning are a major part of the execution of any project, whether that project is the building of their future house or an interactive web campaign for a future client.
Improvements to Focus
As your child grows more confident in using the program, each project will become more involved; they require a tremendous amount of time, effort, and attention to detail. When students edit photos, they will work with layers. Editing in the program is not as easy as a quick swipe here and a click or two here; Photoshop will require your child to use multiple angles of perception as they build on the skills of the lesson before to create an imaginative work of art from scratch, while learning to work with less distraction.
Getting Ahead of the Competition
Photoshop allows students to create visuals that are completely original in nature, from the ground up. This gives them the competitive edge needed in today’s expanding job market. Photoshop is no longer considered an “extra” or “bonus” skill many employers once considered it to be; now, it’s almost a necessity, especially for people working in the design, fashion, advertising, and marketing industries.
The skills that your child will learn by adopting Photoshop techniques are invaluable to their future. See where their imagination leads them in our upcoming Digital Holiday Cards workshop, a 4-hour class designed to teach them the guiding principles.
