Great Open Source tool which is similar to Adobe Photoshop with many plugins to expand its capabilities.

My Take

It's a free tool with many capabilities that helps students to express themselves through artwork. Kids found that the software was very interesting to work with and inspired them to move way beyond the material (step by step guide) that was provided to them.

How I Use It

We used it on teaching the movements of Pop Art, Surrealism and Pictorialism in photography. We used presentations to introduce art movements to the class and working sheets which contained step by step guides for the creation of a project on GIMP. Afterwards the students created their own artwork using the knowledge gained by the tutorial and their creativity.
