I teach art to students who have varying experiences in art. Some of them are just starting on their journey in art, while others have been drawing since they could hold a pencil in their hand. In beginning art classes we work to identify how art is everywhere and the many different styles that they can see. I work with these students to try different mediums and experience different types of art.
My students are hands-on learners who love to see art come to life in a myriad of different ways.
If they have access to new and different mediums they can begin to transform their thinking of art to more than just traditional pencil and paper. It is great to have them experience these differences and learn through them.
Art class has always been an exciting place for students to learn and explore new ideas. At this time our classroom is limited to traditional art materials. With the addition of technology into the classroom, students will be able to gain a deeper understanding of digital art. Digital art has become a huge portion of art but is often left unexplored in art classes.
Drawing pads bring the future of art into the classroom by having students mix traditional techniques with technology.
Students will have the opportunity to draw, color, and create using technology to expand their understanding of art concepts.
