Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can design an art show with this app. To do so, students will first create graffiti art using this app. Next, once all students have created their artwork, they can take a screen shot of it so the artwork is saved to their photo album. Students will then open the picture and put their iPads on display around the room. (Please note: Students may have to adjust the Auto-Lock feature on their iPad so their image is projected and their iPad does not go to sleep.) At this point, students will walk around the room and view their classmates’ graffiti artwork. Using a secret ballot, students can vote for their favorite piece of graffiti artwork. However, to make their vote count, students will have to compose one paragraph explaining why they voted for that piece of artwork.
  2. Teachers can have students create a digital art portfolio. In this portfolio, students would have to select a theme and then create art aligned to that theme using different apps, such as Graffiti Maker, Pottery, and Tayasui Sketches. As students create pieces of art, they can take screen shots of them so the images are saved in their photo album. To create their portfolio, students could import the images into a note-taking app, such as Notability, Paper 53, or Explain Everything. For each piece of art included in their portfolio, students would have to title the work and explain how it represents its theme.
  3. Teachers could play students a song and then have students create a piece of graffiti art in response to the song. After creating their artwork, students would have to compose an explanation for how their artwork represents the song.
