The grade 7 students are about to complete their first major unit which was studying and recreating the work of Georgia O’Keeffe. By completing this task the students learnt very valuable skills from grid drawing, colour matching, oil pastel blending to colour mixing. I gave them quite a big piece of paper so it has been quite a challenge. It really tests their patience and persistence.
Once the work was complete I had the students manipulate their work on iPads. They had to learn about a variety of apps, explain what they explored and prepare for a layered digital artwork which will also be assessed, printed and displayed with their art.
