Vasilisa Forbes tutorial

At i heart teaching art we can't get enough of geometric shapes and colour at the moment! You may of been following our posts recently about our BTEC National photography students - this tutorial concludes the digital part of our lessons and gets students to practice everything they have learnt so far: masking and cropping in Photoshop! I was new to Vasilisa Forbes work until last week and I am so glad I have introduced the bright coloured collages to my students. They loved the use of 'found' imagery and how the artist has used shapes that intersect together to hide the subject matter and create a narrative story line within the image. Have a go at our tutorial below and let us know which work your class preferred: Julie Cockburn or Vasilisa Forbes!
