Technologoy art project - There are three differentiated options included, making this activity accessible to all.
: Print and Go!
If you don't have time to work through the lesson with your students or would prefer to just color in the pages, this is the option for you. Six pages are provided which are my own interpretation of famous paintings by Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Cezanne, Claude Monet, Edvard Munch, Johannes Vermeer, and Gilbert Stuart.
: Some technology
Editable files are included if you would like to modify them in any way. Make copies of the files and your students can digitally edit them - add more circles, remove circles, add color/shade, etc. This is a great way to access the technology without starting from a blank canvas.
: Create new circle art
A 20-page instruction manual is included for creating new circle art using Inkscape (a free and open source program). The guide gives step-by-step instructions with screen shots so that you or your students can take any picture and create circle art from it. Once you have gone through the process, it is very straightforward.
The artwork I have chosen to transform is all in the public domain (due to each country's law based on the year of the artist's death), however for your own personal use you could choose more modern art or even photographs the students have taken themselves. A follow up page is also included (UK English version included for follow up page only).
