from tom chambers re: student GIMP

Dear GIMP:

I've just retired from teaching Technology Applications for middle schoolers (7,8), and I wanted to share the numerous student projects that involved GIMP. Various groups of students turned to your product 30 different times to make things happen:

1) Raul Yzaguirre School For Success [RYSS] - Harmony Hills Elementary School Mentorship Workshop: Twenty-one students [eighth grade] from RYSS traveled to Harmony Hills Elementary School to mentor twenty third grade students in the use of graphics software. This mentorship process involved an intensive session of learning/practicing, and project application to make digital art:

2) Raul Yzaguirre School For Success (RYSS) - Houston Coalition for the Homeless (HCH) "Three Decades of Achievement" Event [April 5, 2013] : A core group of eighth grade students attended the Houston Coalition for the Homeless (HCH) "Three Decades of Achievement" event downtown Houston, April 5, 2013. They displayed a selection of the eighth grade class Digital Art about the homeless to not only call attention to this social issue, but also celebrate their humanity. They explained their (and classmates') multifaceted project that involved Word, PowerPoint and GIMP (graphic arts software):

3) "Homelessness" Digital Art (GIMP) : Eighth grade students used GIMP (Photoshop equivalent freeware) to create Digital Art about homelessness. The art online is a selection from the 8th grade class. They used images of homelessness situations to manipulate in GIMP for the art work. Not only did the students call attention to the plight of the homeless, but also celebrate their humanity through the Digital Art treatment of the images.This activity was in response to a learning service (campaign) initiative by the National Council of La Raza (NCLR):

"a real person" ... who was born shortly after the American Revolution, and whose remains are now at the cemetery ... just a few feet below the headstone. This immediacy of the remains and the original headstone brought this history "closer" to the students as they documented the gravesite, and later, made Digital Art to pay their respects to Sarah.

from tom chambers re: student GIMP

GIMP is a free and open-source graphics editor used by people of all skill levels. It has been around for more than 20 years and was originally created as an improved https://www.edugeeksclub.com/buy-college-papers/ version of Photoshop, but it now stands on its own as the go-to program for many designers and artists.
