We used the Brushes app to import a photo of each student posed like a super hero and added a layer to create a black silhouette of that pose.
I then asked them to choose one color and focus on tints and shades of that color to create a radial design in the background. This is a review of the learning objective we have been working on over the last few lessons.
We then moved our silhouette layer over the colored layer for our finished piece.
My fourth graders have been using the Brushes app for awhile now and I think they are really feeling comfortable using it and the iPads to create Art pieces. I asked a few of my "Brushes experts" to help out the first graders when they created their first Art piece in Brushes. They were so much fun to watch help the little ones and how confident they were.
