Rotoscope - Smartboard
How can SMART/Interactive White Boards be used to teach Art?
- Smart/Interactive White Board
- Smart/Interactive Software
- Digital Photo
Students will learn how to:
- use the Smart/Interactive tools
- draw using the Smart/Interactive board
- use a variety of pen types, diameters, colours, and transparencies
- use layers to make an image
- correct their mistakes (erase)
Students may also learn how to:
- re-size objects
- move objects
- use multiple pens at the same time
Teachers should know how to:
- turn on their Smart/Interactive boards
- launch the suite of software tools
- troubleshoot the board and software
- follow the included tutorials
- use the pens to write on the board
- use the pointer and alternate pens
- Rotoscoping - drawing over photographs
- Constraints - Limitations that teach
Note: This activity can be complete on the Notebook software without the board attached.
- Launch SMART's Notebook software
- Download and Open the 'Kurt.notebook' file (above)
- Using the Smart/Interactive pens and onscreen 'Drawing' and 'Properties' toolbars create your own copy of Kurt Cobain that uses multiple colours, line thicknesses, transparencies, and a range of 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?
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.
