Creating a Rainbow Scratch Picture in paint.net

Creating a Rainbow Scratch Picture in paint.net

This is the computer version of an art activity that used to involve colored crayons, black paint and drawing by scratching in the wet paint with the blunt end of a paint brush. Designed for teachers needing to include some computer technologies in their junior and middle school art programs the resource pages can be be used as a student handout or as a reference for guided instruction. The software named in this resource is paint.net (readily available and free ) but the instructions given are easily transferable to any paint or photo-manipulation software with layered transparencies. The zip file included contains a paint.net file that has the colored background and black top layers already created. This could be used as a template for younger students, allowing them to simply draw and have the background colors show through. Please complete a review of this resource if you have found it useful.

LET'S WORK WITH EMOTIONS

LET'S WORK WITH EMOTIONS

This material consists of 3 sheets size A3 (tabloid) with three templates to make three roulette, one whose main character is a monster, another in which is a girl and another in which is a boy.Each one has an arrow to mark the emotion you want to highlight. Each sheet also includes a small card of each emotion with each character.The emotions expressed here are: joy, sadness, anger, surprise, fear, fatigue, discomfort (sickness), being serious or quiet.You can use it creatively, although here are some ideas of what you can do with this material:- You can practice "making faces" of the different emotions presented here.- You can ask your students to indicate how they feel today.- You can play to make a face of some emotion and ask them to mark with the arrow the emotion that you are reproducing.- You can ask them to make faces and mark you with the arrow the emotion they are doing.- You can put all cards together and ask the kids to put together the ones that represent the same emotions.Anyway, these are just some ideas.
