APS Martin Luther King, Jr. Literacy and Visual Arts Contest

 5th grade art enrichment class worked on visual art entries for the contest. We have been working on using photography and text together to create a work of art. We just finished a unit on self portraits and artist Barbara Kruger, where they connected text to their portrait, using the iPad. 
Today we used the same technology to create MLK, Jr. portraits with text. First the students brainstormed some words or phrases that they connect to MLK, Jr.  Then using the iPad we used goggle to search for images of MLK, Jr., then used Photoshop Express to filter the images, and then took the images into Sketchbook Pro to add text. I think we will have some successful entries for the contest.

Dot Day is a celebration of creativity and making your mark! The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds is a story about a girl in art class and inspiration, courage, and creativity.
On Monday the students in art class will be making their mark by creating their own dot and joining them together to see how everyone creates differently. Above is a photo gallery of our collaborative creation and the students working on their dots.
