Using Technology to Create Art

Grade 9 have been exploring communication through technology and self portraits. The use of grids, cameras, computers, iPads, printers, Apps and social media are explored in this unit. They have looked at ways of mass producing images to communicate and change images. Using a grid on an image is one of the oldest forms of making copies by hand. Students have explored the use of the grid to distort and apply colour to their self portraits creating expressive art pieces that communicate emotions.
