It's Getting Artsy in Here!

We have the most fabulous art teacher at our school!  She is creative and fun, and I am constantly amazed by the creativity she is able to pull from the most unlikely students.  She came to me at the beginning of the school year to talk about how to integrate technology into her art classes, and we decided to use iPod touches for an elements of art project.  The students worked in groups of 4 to explore the library and the side yard of the school to find objects that represent the elements of art.  They saved their pictures, added text to label the elements and created a collage of their photos.  It was like a scavenger hunt to the students, and they absolutely loved using the iPods.  Each group used one iPod so it did not require an entire class set of devices.  The outcome of the project was great, and the students' enthusiasm for this project increased their knowledge and understanding of the art elements to create the perfect foundation for the nine week course.  We used the free apps Aviary (for taking the photgraphs and labeling them) and Photo Collage Free (for putting the photos together).  I saved them all to my computer and put them into a Dropbox folder that I share with my art teacher.


  1. I shared this activity with my sixth grade art teacher, and she loved it! We are going to work together in January for a similar activity. Thank you for sharing!
