My fifth graders are working on creating a William Wegman Styled photo collage from their water colored dog paintings and a photo they pose for with props and costumes. These images will be combined using two apps on the iPad. We will use the Superimpose app to create transparent backgrounds on both the child's pose and dog portrait painting. They will then use Sketchbook Express to layer the dog head, body, background, and shadow. There are a few techniques I came up with that make this pretty easy. Watch my tutorial below to learn my tricks.
Our finished collages turned out AMAZING!
I'm so excited and inspired by what my 5th graders are able to accomplish on iPads.
