The middle school years are a great time to explore new ideas, techniques, and media. In order to provide students with STEAM education, my classroom needs technology which is updated, current and relevant.
My students are eager to add technology to their art curriculum.
When I introduced our new Samsung Tablets this year in art, students were so excited. They were 100% engaged in our Pop Art Self Portraits we created using the app, Artflow. Students took each other's portrait, which they then digitally painted using colors inspired by the 1960's Pop Art movement. As you can imagine, students get very excited about anything new, my students are no exception.
In order to integrate STEAM into our school's art curriculum, my district provided new technology for Middle School Art, digital tablets with touch screen drawing capabilities. Along with the tablets, I was able to purchase a color wireless printer, however, I am quickly realizing how much ink we will go through for my three art classes. Our first digital project was to create a Pop Art Self Portrait. After printing our projects, I realized we will be needing a lot of colored ink. We would be so grateful for extra ink so students can have the experience of creating and printing their digital art.
