We started with the same Art Doodles app that my first graders had used, but then used a few other apps to alter the images. This series of photos shows one of the transitions.
We started with the ArtDoodles app, creating an image in the style of Henri Matisse and saving it to the photos. The options for images are limited, so that's where other drawing and photography apps come into play.
This image was transformed by using the Brushes app over the saved image.
This image was then saved as a second photo in the series.
This last image was created by using the Percolator app with the image
that had been colored using Brushes.
My students LOVE Percolator! The process used to change the effects simulates brewing coffee
and the young Starbucks generation seems to love that!
Since these early experiments with iPads and apps, I've been able to add a few more to my art room iPads and a whole lot more to my personal iPad for summer fun here at home. I'll post a few more of my favorite apps for the art room in the next post.
Do you use iPads for arts activities in your classroom?
