Thank you for taking a few moments to find out what has been happening in your child's art class. There is so much more learning going on than a glimpse in the hallways would show since we do so many digital extensions to our learning with our class set of iPads.
See this tweet where I play with animating a George Washington Portrait.
See these tweets where students use the Green Screen app to speak through George.
Just for Grade 3
3rd graders learned to draw in perspective as they created the shape for their magic carpet. They needed to view it from a side angle so that they could ride it (stay tuned for that!) View their carpets here.
We have big plans for these carpets. Find out in my blog post about our green screen tricks and stop-motion animation backgrounds that will make the students look like they are flying over famous landmarks in the USA.
5th graders are working on a collaborative Exquisite Corpse game inspired by the surreal artists. Each student contributes one Head, Middle, or leg painting that can be mixed and matched with others.

View the one painting each artist created on one side of a cardboard box here.
These were then digitally collected and collaged by each student to show a unique figure. View them here.
These are now on display in the hallways, nooks, and some low traffic spaces of Dryden. View my tweet of them lined up and ready for their installation.
Some of the 5th graders haunted the art room before Halloween by creating holograms: View my post with tutorial and resources explaining how to create a custom hologram. See the video of what they created.
Artsonia is the largest student art museum in the world! Our dream is that every young artist will have an online art gallery,
preserving their masterpieces in a digital portfolio!
