I would love to see your powerpoints. I teach experimental photography.
Students use the darkroom and the "computer darkroom". The David Hockney
lesson is one of my favorites. Some other projects are the elongated
collage, the weaved collage, and anything with Photoshop. Once students
learn the tools and get passed the initial learning curve of Photoshop, they
can't get enough of it.

I am also idea-ing for photo lessons- I will be teaching a digital
photography class in a new virtual high school. I'm not yet sure how much
of the curriculum is pre-set, but it will definitly be interesting. Each
student will have their own camera,and I was thinking about using Gimp at
the end.. I love the found letter idea- there is a children's book out
there- an ABC book that is all found letters- I'm gonna see If I can find it
again (maybe "Architectural Alphabet"??) I was thinking of doing some of the
lessons I did in college- one is a David Hockney style collage, a white on
white, photo narrative and a thematic piece. I have uber informative
powerpoints that I could attempt to share if anyone is interested (they are
from my professor and will need to be edited for classroom use- lots of
information!). Thanks for the other links and ideas!
