The cross images by seventh graders combine photos of students' hand-drawn art with coloring and shapes created using the Sketchbook app on iPads. Students observed photos of the San Damiano Crucifix as they drew the figure of Jesus and the general shape of the cross. In the areas around Jesus and within the cross shape, students have drawn people, things, and places that they are thankful for. The designs of the areas outside the crosses were inspired by stained-glass windows of churches.
As an interlude between long-term projects, sixth grade art tech students have been experimenting with the drawing and design tools of the Sketchbook app on their iPads. Many students were inspired by the kaleidoscopic effects they could create with the symmetry tool of the app.
