This drawing assignment focuses on combining traditional drawing techniques with digital manipulation and technology in order to create a GIF. GIFs are not new technology, but they are as popular as ever, especially on social media. Help students see the connection between art and technology and present an assignment that the students might already have a connection to.
This project not only helps emphasize basic drawing and digital editing techniques, it also introduces students to the history of animation and the role technology has played in the art world.
All in all this lesson pack includes:
-A lesson plan (with a big idea, objectives, vocabulary, national middle and high school art standards, and step by step instructions on implementing the project)
-PowerPoint to introduce the assignment with project examples
-PowerPoint to go into the specifics of how to upload and edit drawings
-GIF how to handout
-Emoji critique signs
