Field Guide \\ St. Edward’s University

Junior Studio : Spring 2007

The students defined parameters around their project in order to be observant, focused, and detailed, rather than creating an overwhelming tome on Austin. The critique required students to go out in the city with another student’s guide.

Students learned the basics of image manipulation in Photoshop by teaming up and playing their way through a set of instructions, which they drew from a paper bag. Each instruction required the students to use a different tool and work together to develop a creative way to alter the image. At the final step, the team could make one tweak before printing the images on t-shirts.
