I had the honor of working with the awesome art teachers of Cobb County, Georgia on their professional development day. I did a 70 minute workshop (3xs) for art teachers who wanted to learn how to integrate technology into their art programs using the iPad. Curated a few Transdigital art examples from my 266 STEAM art lessons indexed on my SMORE page (bookmark this page).
Make it Move it
Participants were shown examples of Make it Move it Transdigital art. Then, they were guided through the steps of drawing a fish, then making the fish drawing swim. This used two app, Superimpose app to make the drawing a PNG and Do Ink Animation app to make the fish swim based on this lesson (#131 on my Smore page). Here are some of the results.
Move it Make it
Move it Make it Transdigital are emphasizes the digital and is supported by physical art. We looked at examples then tried one together. They made a flipbook style ghost animation that lifted off the iPad into a physical space using a plastic hologram viewer. See this post to learn how to try this yourself with my resources, examples, and tutorial.
70 minutes wasn't enough time to get through all three lessons. The Merge it lesson was based on the 1st grade Expressive Robots. This uses the animated glow technique where the animation glows through the drawing from below to complete the art. This handout was designed to help participants through the steps of making a robot with an expression, drawing a symbol that supports the emotion expressed, then laying this drawing over the animation of the symbol in Do Ink animation app as it glows through.
