The grade 6 students have this introductory task so that I can see what their drawing, painting, planning skills are like. It also gives me an opportunity to see who follows instructions very well. We then used these paintings as a background for a digital collage with the iPads. This gave the students an opportunity to discover Grungetastic and layers while focusing on composition, overlapping shapes, scale and transparency.
Before the students began this task they also created graffiti sketchbook covers. I love their colour use and the way they filled their page. The ones with shadows really pop.
