Art Projects with Picture Editing Tools

I had an art teacher ask for ideas for her class, which got me to thinking, “What kind of editing programs are available for free without need of students logging in with emails?” I’ve posted about iPiccy previously (who has time?), but this is a site that you can’t believe is free. Tools are easy to comprehend, the site is easy to maneuver through, and results are wonderful. Remember that you can check out classroom digital camera sets for usage. Integration ideas needed? I’d love to share some ideas with you!

Here are examples of what I did with a picture that I took when working in Brussels (original picture first):

“Night at the Museum” Smithsonian Style

Take a “trip” through the Smithsonian at night: “After a field trip to the Smithsonian American Art Museum, you are magically taken to the galleries at night. Artworks are mixed up—all because of the troublesome Root Monster! To get back home, you have to solve mysteries—and help your new friends find their artworks.” Made for nine to ten year olds, students are able to take a tour to see works of art while also learning along the way. Wonder what the nine year old beta testers think? Read reviews on the Smithsonian blog and then take a tour yourself, if you dare!
