Salad Selfies & Art History | iPad Art Room - 0 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."

Word Cloud Self-Portraits - Dryden Art - 5 views

  •  
    "If I were doing this project today I would have students do every step on the iPad using 
    1. Notes to brainstorm and write their 75 words
    2. Word Cloud to paste in and create their cloud then design their layout
    3. Superimpose to layer their images together, mask their photo, and save
    I have a tutorial showing how to layer and mask images using the green screen app here.
    The images can also be layered in the latest version of the Green Screen app by DoInk now that you can resize images."

How California Schools Are Using Art to Boost Achievement | The California Report | KQE... - 1 views

  •  
    "In a first-grade classroom at Peralta Elementary School in Oakland, children concentrate on detailed pencil drawings of scenes from the underground railroad. Safehouses and trap doors appear on paper. One boy is drawing dogs with pointy teeth.

    Here at Peralta, art is never just about art. These first-graders are learning about history, but they're also practicing math, measuring with their fingers to figure out where to draw horizon lines. Teacher Pam Lucker is helping the students include perspective."
