Using iPads in the Art Room
Transcript of Using iPads in the Art Room
iPads in the Art Room
This artwork was done using an app called Type Drawing. The students have the opportunity to use words to create a drawing. Student’s can use their own words to illustrate a piece of poetry they have written. For an English language learner this app helps make connections between vocabulary and images.
An app called Brushes was used to create this image. It was made using layers with the first layer being a photo and the second layer a painting done in the app. Creating with layers allows student to easily understand the concept of foreground, middle ground and background. The layers can also be individually manipulated to change the space in their work.
Brushes was also used for these images that explore contour lines and shapes. Student was able to use the iPad to photograph themselves and import it into Brushes. In the app the student used a 2nd layer to do a contour drawing of the photo then remove the photo and use 3rd layer to to add color to the shapes they discovered.
In these images, my students were exploring what it would be like to enter a masterpiece of their choice. These were also done using layers in Brushes. We then used an augmented reality app called Aurasma to add a video artist’s statement to our images.
Percolator is a photo manipulation app that can be used with student artwork as well. Students of all ages love using it to make their realistic artwork more abstract.
PHYZIOS Copper Relief is a great tool for demonstrating and practicing the art of repousse and chasing, or embossing. Helps student understand the process and how the copper will react before using the real thing.
UKIYOE Woodcut is another app that gives the student an opportunity to experience the process and understand the outcome before cutting into the actual wood or linoleum. The reverse image that a print makes is difficult for young students to comprehend.
Collage is a medium that is sometimes hard for younger students who are still learning the proper way to use scissors. Faces iMake allows them to create collage without the frustration of trying to cut what they want. Great for connecting with the work of Arcimboldo and collaborating on the SmartBoard.
When we are studying radial balance, My Flake is a great way to demonstrate to the students how to properly cut the paper. They also get a chance to make their own cuts and see what happens when the wrong part is cut or too much is cut.
When my students plan projects like clay masks they make sketches but never get the opportunity to experiment and plan 3-dimensionally. 123D Sculpt gives students a digital sculpting experience they can apply to the clay pieces they make in class.
PHYZIOS Sculptor is a sculpture app that gives students a chance to practice some wood carving. I would never put a chisel into the hands of a 1st grader but I could give them an iPad so they can begin to feel and see how a subtractive sculpture is created.
123D Make is the app I really wish I had in college. It would have saved me hours of work in my 3-Dimensional Design class! I have not used it yet at the elementary level but at the secondary level it would be a great introduction to the process of 3D printing.
My 4th graders will be using the Morfo app in a few weeks to add an artist statement to their Inca Masks. We will also be using Aurasma to create an augmented reality triggered by their masks.
StoMo is an app that is used to create stop-motion animations. My 4th graders are just finishing up a project that is an interpretation of “The Nutcracker Suite” by either Tchaikovsky Or Duke Ellington. The students analyzed the music with our Music teacher, Allie Lang, and then collaborated in groups of 2 or 3 to create the stop-motion animations

Forget about trying to find cameras for your students to use, you now have an iPad with an excellent camera and hundreds of apps that can be used to edit or alter your photos. These are examples of how images can be changed with apps such as Color Splash, PhotoStudioHD, Easy Editor or Color Effects.
Popsicolor is is another example of an app that a student can use to alter their photographs. It can also be used to alter drawings and/or paintings that a student has created.
Glaze is yet another app that will allow student to take their photos, drawings or paintings to another level of creating.
An app that will transform the camera into a kaleidoscope is Kaleidomatic. You can take a photo with multiple symmetries to choose from or alter a photo within the app.
Kaleido (free) allows students to draw in a kaleidoscope view. The app also documents all your movements and creates a video of the drawing process.
A 4th grade class in the district used this to create a rose window for a gothic architecture drawing. They then used Aurasma to link the photo to a video they created. You can join our group, Nell Burks Elementary, to see the video of the picture attached.
Another app that will replace the your camera is LightBomber. This app is used for light painting without the fuss of adjusting all the exposure settings on a regular camera. It will work in a dark or low light environment with an ambient light adjustment. Glow sticks, holiday lights or the light from a cell phone works best.
A 2nd grade class in the district is going to create a superhero and then write 5 sentences to introduce their super hero and tell what makes them super. They will take photos and a video and then use these in their Videolicious presentation. Then we will link the video to their art piece using Aurasma. This is a teacher created example.
Mojo Mask and Chinese NY Mask are both fun apps to experiment with different types of masks in the Chinese culture and the Mexican culture.
