Have you updated your Final Share slideshow?

I feel confident using adobe programs and online tools to make digital art.
My work is stronger because I use the elements and principles of art/design.
I can effectively use digital tools to make art that communicates my ideas to an audience.
I can use Juxtaposition and metaphor to create a photomontage.
I can manipulate and use photoshop tools to create a believable montaged scene.
