    Hello students! I hope everyone is well and safe. Since we have moved to online school for the near future, I am listing several fun websites below where you can be creative and continue to learn principles and elements of art.  The digital art can be selected and colored on your Andriod or Apple phone or tablet. Digital art can also be done on your Mac or PC computer. You will be able to email your online artwork to me or take photos of hand drawn artwork and email to me at mary.tomlin@spls.org. 

    Assignments will take you one (1) hour each week to complete. The assignments will be due on each Friday by 4:00 pm in the afternoon.  

    Digital Art Websites Recommended by Scholastic

    If you love to color, you will enjoy playing with the digital patterns at Scrap Coloring. There are many templates to choose from; the areas within these can be filled with either solid color or a range of patterns. The patterns can also be reconfigured by adjusting the colors.

    At Bomomo, you can experiment to your heart's content. There is a range of interesting tools, and the best way to discover what they can do is to simply try them. Click one of the icons at the bottom of the screen, then move and click your mouse to make a cool abstract composition. If you can't save the creation, try taking a screen grab of it.

    One great thing about websites that allow us to explore and play with art is that we may be encouraged to go on from there to try a similar activity in real life. Aminah's World is a website presented by the Columbus Museum of Art. Here you can choose a digital background then build a collage by layering kente cloth and other fabric scraps, found objects, shells, and yarn. Objects can be moved and re-sized, and the result printed out. 

    Another website that facilitates lots of art exploration is Toy Theater. The art activities there include building with colored blocks, doodling, designing, animation, and a glimpse into processes like Matisse's painting and Japanese wood block prints. You need to take a screen grab to save the work you do here.
