iPads in the Classroom: A Creative Visual Arts Tool


This one-day workshop introduces teachers to the creative potential of the iPad for both instructors and students. Create digital works of art by downloading and operating free to low-cost user-friendly art applications (apps) that provide access to virtual art materials including digital crayons, markers, and paint. Explore the basics -- opening a new file, using the various drawing/painting tools, saving, accessing, and emailing artwork files; and more complex operations -- working with layers, expanded color pallets, multiple brushes featuring opacity and size controls, image transformation options, and text inclusion. Covers step-by-step instruction in utilizing the iPAd as a tool for tutorial creation, project documentation, and visual presentation. Ideal for classroom teachers who wish to engage students creatively, introduce basic art techniques, and incorporate student artwork into classroom projects.
