This graphic design lesson gives students the chance to combine their digital drawing skills and artist statement into a meme that promotes art education.
Process: #ArtMatters Memes
I've taught artist statement
lessons in a bunch of ways.
Here are some posts to explore if you want to try this idea differently:
Using Cam Wow and PicCollage
Download my artist statement worksheet
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'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.
How we learn in the art room is expanding as our digital tools grow. Take a look below at how students can now explore the concept of contour line drawing with the interactive whiteboard and the iPads.
Mirroring the iPad wirelessly with Apple TV not only makes teaching on the iPads easier, but it also shows my students everything in the Brushes App which makes teaching art projects in the Brushes App possible.. Brushes only selectively projects through VGA. The tools and layers do not show making it much harder to teach art making.
