Grade 8 Painting for GISS

I am very proud of this unit because I made it up completely without other inspirations. I was asked to have a student exhibit dedicated to GISS the Global Issues Summit which is happening here in February.

imageAs I was playing with the ipads I had a brainwave “what if  I had the students use  Google Earth to find their home country, manipulate the image on Art Rage and then copy the digital painting onto paper with traditional media”?

DSCN0632To make it connected to GISS I had the students research GLOBAL ISSUES for their own country then they had to turn the article into a Wordle for a visual representation. These articles and Wordles will be combined with their abstracted aerial landscape.
