INSECTS UNIT: Friend or Foe?

Montalvo Arts Center / Teaching Artists in the Schools Residency / 2nd grade, 10 session project, Rosemary Elementary School, Campbell, CA, Fall 2016.

Friend or Foe
Art/Design: Poster with tablet (one session)
In this exercise, using graphic design concepts, the students chose an insect, do some research about it, draw it and articulate a message, working with a tablet and the application Piccollage. They create at least two versions of their poster, looking for the best contrast and the best use of fonts and colors. At the end of the exercise, they save several jpegs that can be shared and/or printed.
