Awesome GIMP Image Editing Work by Year 8

Last term I have been teaching image editing tools and techniques to my year 8 students (12-13 years old). We have used GIMP (similar to the well-known Photoshop). I am very happy with the outcome and students had fun learning :D


Below you can find a small showcase of the work they have done.
