Year 10 are working on the theme ‘Altered Nature’ and have been on a trip to Kew Gardens where they took a range of macro photos. They presented the best of these in their sketchbook but I wanted them to really focus on creating some altered images with the images they took. So using Pixelmator they developed the images into a kaleidoscope style.

The class really enjoyed seeing how the images reflected and created the interesting patterns and shapes. I am going to get a high quality print of each of their best images printed via ZipPosters to put into their portfolios.

I imagine this technique could easily be replicated in Photoshop if your school did not have computers with Pixelmator on. I have attached the hand out that I used in the lesson: Flower Pattern ICT sheet
