(Here is his handout with step-by-step directions. Here is his interactive site with games and more.) Originally I would help my students create these Pigeon inspired book covers from their paintings with a rule from our art room. We used keynote on the desktop. Here is the tutorial for this technique. Today I recorded a tutorial for doing this project on the iPad. This technique would empower young artists to do each step of this project independently starting with THIS TEMPLATE. You might also want to show my animated and narrated version of the book, Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus (also created using Keynote). Oh, and here is a worksheet to print out to help your students plan their design.
