Girl at the Window, Salvador Dali, 1925
I came across this painting by surrealist artist, Salvador Dali, online a couple weeks ago in this blog post. This realistic painting of Dali's sister Ana Maria looking out a window inspired this art lesson to teach shallow and deep space. I began by first erasing the view in the window so that students could digitally replace it on the iPad in Brushes or Sketchbook Express with an image that creates deep or shallow space. Download the template below. Then I thought, why don't I just erase everything and let students become the viewer as well as choosing the view. This result would lend itself to a reflective writing piece to accompany their art. Download the template below.
I'm gearing up for the school year by collecting my resources and making them easily available for anyone who wants to learn some of my tips for how to create on the iPad. There are tons of apps in the app store, but I tried to limit my ideas to only a few so that we can work with what we have on our school iPads while I explore other apps and begin writing grants to get them in the future. (100 ipads=$$ for each app purchase) so I'm trying to keep it simple. Below is a screen shot of the new page I added to my website. Visit it here. There are links leading to resources, videos, tutorials, and files that you can download from your iPad and get started playing right away.
