A Complete Guide for Stop-Motion Animation in the Art Room | The Art of Education | Blo... - 1 views

  •  
    "I was first inspired to explore stop-motion when I met influential art ed dude Mark Jones. He's the genius behind some of the best stop-motion animation videos designed, written, and created by kids. I was lucky enough to see him at my state art ed conference a few years back. If you haven't seen these videos - watch them before you go any further!

    The Robot and the Butterfly
    Stand Up Tall
    Stand Up Tall: Behind the Scenes (to help visualize the process)
    See more on Mr. Jones' YouTube channel.
    After seeing the potential, I asked myself: How do I do this with MY kids?"

Shaping Symbols - Constructing Logos with Apps | iPad Art Room - 2 views

  •  
    "
    It was visual literacy in action this week at The Kellett School in Hong Kong as a variety of elementary classes explored logo design for packaging. These young learners needed to craft a distinctive design, using a considered colour palette and a combination of shapes, in Assembly app on their iPads.

    While there are a whole variety of tools that can be used for this kind of task, one of the powerful tools in this app is actually one that is missing - text! With no words 'to do the talking', the principles of art and design took centre stage during the production of this purely visual piece of communication.

The Best iPad Apps For Drawing, Painting, & Art Education - 0 views

  •  
    "Many artists like pallets, holding pencils and brushes in their hands, and working with the textured surface of a canvas or paper.

    But many of the same artists also like digital portfolio, easy publishing, one-button sharing, working with layers, mashing images, video, and music, and other potential that comes with working with digital tools. And this is especially true for those working in art education-teachers that have to handle the workflow of dozens of students working on dozens more projects as a time.

    In this way, tablets like the iPad, Nexus 7, and Windows Surface can make a lot of sense-and programs like the collection-by listly user Teaching Pallet-of the following 30 iPad apps for drawing, painting, and art education a great place to start your iPad art collection."

Here Is an Important Resource for art Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Lear... - 1 views

    "Art History Basics is an excellent resource for Art teachers and students. It provides a collection of educational videos, articles, and several other materials to chronicle the development of art and help students learn major artistic movements and works that spanned human history. Art History Basics is a fruit of a partnership between Khan Academy, Smarthistory, and some leading art historians and museums. Content in art History Basics is arranged into five main sections:"

Design a Thematic Art Gallery with Google Art Project | - 2 views

  •  
    "At the end of Lord of the Flies, there is a section titled "Notes on the Lord of the Flies," in which William Golding says, "The theme [of the novel] is an attempt to trace the defects of society back to the defects of human nature. The moral is that the shape of a society must depend on the ethical nature of the individual and not on any political system however apparently logical or respectable."

    I asked students to design a thematic art gallery that explored the truth about human nature. Because art often serves as a mirror reflecting people, society and life, I thought this would challenge students to confront the realities of human nature-the good and the bad. It also allowed students to contrast this theme in the text with this same theme in art.

    Although I used this project to explore the theme of human nature, it can be done to encourage students to think deeply about any theme they are studying."

Visual Literacy - Metalanguage & Learning - 3 views

  •  
    An increasingly significant aspect of literacy is an awareness of the visual elements that fall beyond the traditional components of written text. Termed 'Visual Literacy' this is the ability to read and create communications that use visual elements. It combines the skills of traditional literacy with knowledge of design, art, graphic arts, media and human perception. It takes literacy further beyond a decoding of text to a decoding of the complete package around the communication.

Creative Coding: Painting with Light | iPad Art Room - 0 views

  •  
    "
    This week I've been collaborating with Year 4 students, and their inspiring classroom teacher and fellow ADE Dan Aivaliotis-Martinez (@martinezgeek). We developed some ideas for teaching and learning that connected Sphero devices with art-making practices - in a nutshell, programming a Sphero ball to move with the coloured light turned on, recording the trail, or 'light painting', photographically.

    These cross-curricular lessons drew upon elements of the curriculum in science, maths, technology and the arts, as students created 'light paintings'."

Viewing Art to Start Students Reading | 4 O'Clock Faculty - 1 views

  • Replacing written text with artwork, photographs, or illustrations offers a number of advantages, especially early in the school year.  Visual imagery is very accessible and a lot less intimidating to a wide range of learners including non-readers, struggling readers, and English language learners. This enables these students a greater chance to practice some of the forms of complex thinking that they will need as the year progresses such as using text evidence, identifying theme, and making connections.
  • Another advantage the visual imagery has over written text is that it is very fast to decode.
  • Artworks can and should be treated just as a written text. By doing so, students can get their academic thinking started early, laying a foundation for them to build on throughout their school year.

    Interesting blog post advocating for the use of analysing images in support of literacy skills.

Salad Selfies & Art History | iPad Art Room - 1 views

  •  
    "Providing an opportunity for students to connect with portraiture through the work of Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1526-1593) is engaging stuff.
    This Italian painter is most famous for his imaginative faces made up entirely of fruit, vegetables, meat and other objects of significance, and they continue to be a source of wonder for children of all ages.

    Students can use the Pictoboldo app to create their own digital collages."

Paper Circuit ROBOTS 2.0 - Dryden Art - 1 views

  •  
    "ve been playing with ways to make a switch or button on my paper circuit artwork appear more integrated and purposeful. The robot I originally played with had a momentary button that I designed over the battery into the belly of the robot. See it here. The button also worked as the mechanism that closed the circuit. This time I bought a button online that was spliced into the circuit and not necessarily near the battery. This meant the connection to the battery was fixed and pushing the button (with a satisfying click noise) completed the circuit. I've been playing with ideas in preparation for the fall since I finally received the Donors Choose grant for supplies to try this with my students."

    "With summer right around the corner, it is time to relax, decompress, and then start thinking about next year (when you're ready, of course J). Once ready, we here at App Ed Review encourage you to start thinking about ways to incorporate art into your instruction! Whether you're an English, social studies, P.E., or math teacher (or another subject area too!), art can be used to expand student learning and allow them to demonstrate their learning. We hope the apps below provide you with some ideas."

Creatubbles for global galleries (time to retire the refrigerator?) - @joycevalenza Nev... - 0 views

  •  
    "Creatubbles is a global platform for sharing and interacting with children's visual art. I believe this is a tool many of us having been looking for a long time.

    Designed for elementary through middle school-age kiddos, the platform allows young artists to safely showcase, archive and share their creative work.

    It also allows them to discover, to be inspired by, and to interact with the work of others."
