Fugleflick to introduce Contour Line Drawing:
Take a digital image of the finished artwork and have students add an artist statement using an app like Phonto if on an iPad or Keynote if using a laptop.
I started combining three free apps to make one strong statement about contour line negative and positive portraits.
The Photo Grid collage app is free, clean, and full of functions. (I like that it doesn't leave a watermark on your artwork like pic collage). I played with a bunch of ways to put the negative/positive images together in the app. I thought about matching the images so they complete each other. I thought about notans and the play of light and dark as I created these.
Have your students bloomed where they were planted? Have they grown this school year?
What better way to show student growth than to have them demonstrate with an animated bobblehead featuring themselves. Each students' animation could include a reflection in audio or text highlighting the way they have grown throughout the school year.
Option: Have students photograph a place where they have grown or have been planted. Use this photo as the background for the animation.
Option: Save as data (doInk) and open in Green screen app to have more than one bobblehead blossom animate together.
Import your animation video in the Shadow Puppet app to add voice recording and music. This would be a great way for your students to explain how they've grown.
Here is another appsmash. I created a budding artist slideshow using Superimpose app, photogrid app, the blossom bobblehead animation from DoInk, and the Green Screen app. Blow are the pieces I made and combined. I layered blue background, a green shape (to become transparent in the green screen app), and a frame in superimpose app then put it in Phonto to add text. I left the space on the right for the blossom animation. I chose a square frame to match the format of the slideshow created using photogrid app. This is a great way to create mini digital portfolios with your budding artists. The above movie was made using the Green Screen app. The top layer was the blossom animation, middle layer was the budding artist template, bottom layer was the slideshow.
