Grade 6 Completed Their Eyes

We began this unit by learning how to plan our work. The students created 6 different eye designs and 3 backgrounds following the requirements. Then they drew up their final eye and filled it with flat colours.

We then looked at the art of Teesha Moore and Zentangles and collected 10 patterns in our sketchbooks. After that we added at least 5 of them to our eye with black, gold and correction pen.

There are still some I need to photograph. I will update the slideshow soon. This was also the first time the students uploaded their work to Artsonia and wrote their artist statements.

Now, we are learning how to transform and add new meaning to our art by using the iPads. The students will collect and print their developmental work in their camera rolls. Here are the task sheets:


The goal of this task is to firstly learn about the students, their interests, likes and personality traits, whilst exposing them to three awesome apps Wordfoto, Superimpose and Snapseed.


The second task is about learning how to successfully merge two apps and create a drop shadow. The students will focus on design skills and apply the principles of art.


The last digital task is to combine Tiny Planets with Glitch to completely transform the art work. The best three will be printed onto stretched canvases, so that we can view our work like a “real” artwork, that someone could buy and hang on the wall. I can’t wait to see the final results!

Well done grade 6 you are doing a great job so far.
