Art Revolution

As previously discussed, in school this year we are looking at the following question:

'What was more important, the industrial revolution or the digital revolution?'

Today was scheduled to be an art lesson. We used the app 'Brushes'. The introduction to the lesson looked at the visual elements of form and composition. We discussed these and the children then began to look for images online that spoke to them of old, industrial or victorian times. They thought of pastimes, jobs etc that may produce memorable images. They then selected one image and, using Brushes, turned them into a silhouette. Then, on another layer, they inserted a contrasting picture that spoke of the modern, digital age. They learned a lot, were highly motivated for an extended period and produced some excellent results.

Thanks iPad!
