Sunday, Sweet Sunday - 17 of 31

For inspiration, a tech way of drawing!





          I created this on my IPad with an app titled DoodleBuddy.  It's really fun, and I thought I'd show it off so you can download it yourself, and play with the art.  It's compatible for the IPhone, IPad and IPod Touch! Plus I think there's another version for Androids.  You can save and upload your pictures as jpgs.  It's better than fingerpainting, so hopefully you can try it.  Can you imagine pictures within this one?  I wonder if you can see the purple mountains, with lava flowing?  Or the rather cute pink animal on the left.   I've had older students fingerpaint, then write about their work.  If you have an interactive white board you could hook up an IPad and have students write from the same prompt.  
           Happy St. Patrick's Day!

So much fun! I love art apps. Have you ever tried http://www.nga.gov/kids/ ? My students love a session in the lab when we get to just explore this site.

One of the perks of sharing some things is that others share back. No, I've not heard of that, Mardie. I'll check it out! Thanks!

It reminds me of the spin art I used to create at a booth at the country fair! Hmm, maybe I should write about that. Thanks for sharing!

My grandkids are going to love this --and probably me too!

Linda at teacherdance said...

I remember that spin art! Such fun. Glad you connected!

Linda at teacherdance said...

It is fun-both Carter & Ingrid like it, Deb!

Tara @ A Teaching Life said...

How very cool! I need to find this - it will give me some hope of ever producing some form of original artwork.

Linda at teacherdance said...

My pleasure, Tara. You will be pleased with what will appear! (te he)

Carol said...

This looks like a really fun app. Afraid to try it out- looks like it could be yet another way to avoid housework and taxes!

JenniferM said...

Wow, what a neat "painting", Linda! I see some horned creatures gathered around a green campfire. :-) I'm not really an artist, but I might have to try this out!

Linda at teacherdance said...

My next big thing is to gather the tax stuff too, Carol. Oh boy! I understand there about procrastination! Thanks!

Linda at teacherdance said...

It s just as it says, "doodles". I wanted to share still another way to unlock some creativity too, in art with writing. Thanks, Jennifer!

Judy said...

Such an interesting painting. Since I don't have an Ipod, Ipad, etc. I'll have to check it out to see if they have something for the Kindle. Thanks for sharing.

Robin said...

I'm going to download this app right now! My kids will love it! Who am I kidding...I will love it! Thanks for the idea. Your picture is amazing! Frame-worthy for sure!

Tam said...

I have to look into that app for my Kindle. I always get things on it my grandkids, so they think Gram is cool! It would be interesting to hear kids talk about what they draw. Thanks.

Beverley Baird said...

It's amazing what you can do online. I have never created on the computer, even with photoshop (altho I want to learn it). I do all my creating with paint and paper.
It is lovely Linda!

Christy Rush-Levine said...

My fingers are itching to play...

Linda at teacherdance said...

It really works so similarly to finger painting, Judy. Hope it works for your Kindle. Thanks!

Linda at teacherdance said...

Thanks Robin, but really, it's just doodling! I remember one thing my grandson did was make an American flag, so there are realistic possibilities too-just fun!

Linda at teacherdance said...

Great Tam-hope you & they have a good time with it!

Linda at teacherdance said...

Someday I want to get Photoshop, Beverley. I think there are lots of amazing things to do with it. I know you do so many creations, but this is just crazy fun to further the thinking in a way.

Linda at teacherdance said...

Lots of great apps available aren't there? Thanks!

Storykeeper said...

I will look for the app it looks like great fun.

Linda at teacherdance said...

Thanks, Ruth-hope you like it!
