Junior Art Projects with Google

Session Description
We  will look at five art projects that can be carried out using Google Apps, Picasa and Google Maps.
These five projects are easy to do and allow students to learn about different artists, styles and techniques while giving them artistic freedom to explore their own style. 
Students also learn how to perform a range of techniques using the programs which they may not have used before.
Participants will be able to have a go at creating their own art projects using the Google tools and will need access to Google Docs, Google Maps and have downloaded Google Picasa (desktop). In addition, participants will need a range of images that they could use in their projects.

The One Sheet Wonder project files can be found here. Enjoy!
