A long time ago I responded to Ian Sands on twitter asking for digital images of children's art that he could offer to his high school students to play with as they learn to animate. Some of his students selected my students "He Came with the Chair" paintings. The animations turned out SO adorable and inspiring-see example below or check them all out here. It has been one of my goals to figure out an elementary level lesson with a straightforward app that would give my students the experience of animating their own artwork in the same style. I think I might have figured it out. This technique isn't perfect, but, it will work.
The high school artists of APEX High School in NC under the direction of their art teacher, Mr. Ian Sands, did a collaborative art project with our 1st graders.
Look at how they transformed these Lima Bean Monsters into super cool animations!
This collaboration was formed via Twitter. Take a look below to see our tweets.
Ian Sands, the amazing art teacher of Apex High School, is in my PLN. Last week he wrote a twitter message asking art teachers if they had student art his students could use to animate. I volunteered our second grader's Creatures that Came with the Chair.

This morning, to my great delight, I found a tweet directing me to these amazing little animations. See Ian's blog post to see other children's art animated too.
