I turned my Emotional Robots showing a full range of feelings into a poster set for display in the classroom as a mood meter and a color wheel combined. They also are set up with augmented reality so the robots can express themselves even more through animation using the free AR app, Eyejack. The six poster set is available on TpT here.
I've spent months playing with augmented reality in preparation for bringing into my classroom. My 5th graders were my first students to go through the steps I had envisioned of making art, making the art move through animation, then witnessing the art come alive with augmented reality as they scan the art and see the animation.
I wrote about this lesson and every step involved in this post.
The Illinois Art Education Association is now offering free webinars for professional development hours. They're short, interactive, and interesting (hopefully.) Check out the list of upcoming and archived webinars on their site (click button or here) to register.
Make it Then Move it: Mixing Physical and Digital Art
Wednesday, September 20th, 7pm Central
Format of Webinar:
The webinar will be synchronous beginning at 7pm central time. I will be sharing short pre-made videos that explain my content and then coming on your screen chatting with you through my webcam. You can interact by sending questions through the interface. Hopefully you will find it helpful. Feel free to watch the videos ahead of time so you can think of questions you might want to ask.
1. Express Yourself in Expressionism
Students made art physically then entered it digitally through the magic of green screen.
View the post here and my brief video below.
2. MAKE IT then MOVE IT: Animated GIF
Students make artwork, take a digital photo of it, then use Brushes Redux on the iPad to make it into an animated GIF. See my post for details and the brief video below.
3. Make Digital Art Physical: HOLOGRAM
Students make a flipbook style animation on the iPad using Do Ink Animation app then make it "come to life" as a hologram. See my post for details and the brief video below.
The more detailed tutorial is on my post.
4. Rotoscope in a Mutoscope
Students collaboratively turned a video into a rotoscope (digital). These individual drawings were then printed and made into a flipbook mutoscope (physical). View my post for more details and the brief video below.
5. Animated Sketchnotes: Mini Stories
Take the sketchnote concept to the next level by animating them. Combine physical drawings and animations to tell mini stories. View my post for details and the brief video below to hear the secrets of some of my mini digital stories.
6. Haunted Masterpieces
Students can enter paintings as if they were ghosts haunting them using the Green Screen App by Do Ink. This gives students a chance to digitally interact with art, change the meaning, and reflect on the new story as if it hung in a haunted art museum. See my post for details and view my haunted paintings and meanings in the video below.
