So in Week 7 we are exploring our needs and our emotions.

You pick one word from the needs list and then pair it with either a word or emotion from the Grey or the Gold paper.

Shoot your image during week 7 and then focus on the post production aspects in week 8.

Note to parents:

We all hear about the evils of photoshop.  I should know I am making a whole movie about its impact on female body perception.  But here is the deal.  Photoshop can be used for good or evil.

In Click Happy we teach how to use it's powers for good.   The Adobe Creative Suite is a brilliant creative tool.  Some schools will have it available for the kids and some will not.  Having access to it on the home laptop will help your child to progress as a visual storyteller, and we need morally strong, ethically sound story tellers in the world so we need your child to be skilled up to tell those stories that can help to shape and change the world.

Adobe is a tool that will help them to do that.  Students get it for 70% off too.  So if budget allows it might be a good investment in their creativity.
