Explore Digital Art Online!

I made this Street Art on my iPad at https://www.tate.org.uk/kids. I call it “Sculpture Riding Horse”. I also painted a landscape of my favorite place, Coney Island in Brooklyn. I included a beach towel, beach chair and umbrella because this gear was essential to an enjoyable beach day for me. This picture also reminds me how my friends and I used to spend Memorial Day and Labor Day exploring all the beaches in New York-we went to a different one on these two holidays every year together for ~5 years. We would always take a picnic lunch so I painted a picnic basket in my landscape. And we always seemed to have random things happen during each adventure. Such great memories!

Did you know? Every student and teacher in Utah can use Adobe software including Photoshop and Illustrator for free?! You can create amazing digital art with photoshop and illustrator. There are lots of online tutorials for using these projrams including on YouTube. Check out the online adobe digital storytelling apps Spark Video, Spark Page, and Premiere Rush. One of my favorite Adobe programs you can access in Premiere Pro, a great video editing App. It makes industry standard, professional quality videos. Ms. Cecil is also a great resource for learning about the Adobe software Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro and InDesign. She has taken college classes to learn how to use them.  There are phone and tablet versions of this software too!
