- Using the ArtRage brushes, pens, properties, etc, create your own rotoscoped, or original, image using multiple colours, line thicknesses, opacity, and a range of painting and/or drawing techniques (ex. hatching, stippling, etc...)
- Reflect. What did you learn? How could you use this technique in class? What problems did you face? How did you solve them?

- ArtRage + SMART [Inspiration video]
- This activity can be complete in ArtRage without a Smart/Interactive board.
- With a SMART board (specifically) you can use a [clean] paint brush and/or a tennis ball in place of the standard pens. Using a real paintbrush connects your students to the physical act of painting. Watch how it changes the marks that they make.
This video uses an 'iPen' but ArtRage works identically with a Smart/Interactive board. Video by Cregle
Remember: Learning new skills can be challenging for both you and your students. Don't give up or get too frustrated if your well-planned activity doesn't work the first time. You need to reflect and keep at it.
