Digital Art and Google Drawings - Creating Avatars, 8th grade ... plus, a couple of things I want to try in my classroom.

Digital Art and Google Drawings

Hi there,

I know it’s been a while, I am back in the classroom this year and haven’t had as much time to work on posts as I did in the past. But...I did want to share a couple of the projects my Digital Art Design students have done using Google Drawings. The first is the Avatar/Self-Portrait project.


  1. I had them watch a short video on the basics of using Google Drawings
  2. Then do a mini assignment to practice the basics and working with the order of the objects.
  3. Then I had a how-to video available for them on drawing a digital avatar. 
From there, there were off to the races and created wonderful work!

Video Mash-Ups with Google Slides
"Mash-ups can also be educational when the creator uses the two items to explain or express an idea, or for one of the items to complement or expand on the other." This post from +Eric Curts has some ideas and resources for learning more.
