First grade is reviewing the learning objective: I can create an alternating pattern with line, shape or color. We started with importing a mitten template into the app Brushes and creating a second layer to draw an alternating line pattern on each mitten. We then created another layer to add our alternating color pattern to our mittens. Finally we painted a fourth layer with one color for our background. I then showed the class how to move the layers around to create a neatly colored and outlined piece. They were very excited and surprised Brushes could do this. Finally we played back our pieces and then uploaded them to Dropbox.
Check out my YouTube I've been teaching elementary Art for 18 years the last eight at Becky-David in the Francis Howell School District. Teaching Art is a great job and I absolutely love it! My job is made easier by all the wonderful Art teachers out there who share their ideas and "secrets" with me personally and through the internet. Thank you!
