In Term 1, the children learnt how self-portraits can be created digitally on iPads. These works were created using the art app Art Studio. Firstly, the children took photos of themselves. These photos were imported into the app and a “layer” created over the top of the image. The children drew on this “layer” until they had completed their drawing with thin black line. The photo is then deleted and their tracing drawing remains. The process is then repeated with their line drawing imported and a “layer” is added over the top of this image. The children then colour using a range of brushes, paints, pens, and spray effects.
This is work from the first two or three lessons; most are not finished as the children want to keep working on them.
