iPad Art By Grade 7

The iPads are not just for games they are extremely powerful tools which my students have been enjoying for conceptual developments, reflecting, creating and manipulating.

They can use this many ways but basically for this task they photographed their poetry painting and manipulated it using a variety of apps from the list above. All work is saved to the camera roll and Dropbox.

The students upload their images from a variety of apps and fuse them together using opacity and the eraser. Of course they can draw, paint on top and add text too. The new image can then go back into the manipulation apps for greater variety and choice. The last step is to share and reflect on their work.  The possibilities are endless! Just look at the incredible variety a few quick learners have produced.
