Paper by FiftyThree

Create virtual sketchbooks for each of your students.

Mar 25, 2013 - itunes.apple.com - 7375

Create and share presentations using images and embedded video. See how art students used them at the Art Institute of Chicago: http://theteachingpalette.com/2013/02/01/artist-experts-on-ipads/

Mar 25, 2013 - itunes.apple.com - 7793
SketchBook Express

Is a good drawing app with layers for more advanced interactions. Here is a nice review of the uses in the art curriculum: http://www.theartofed.com/2012/06/26/the-app-every-art-teacher-must-have/
Here is a video overview of the featueres: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tn2id0MjD18
SketchBook Pro offers more layers and additional features including the Photoshop format. Check out this video geared toward kids learning the basics of Sketchbook Pro. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnxQRJUwPi0

Mar 25, 2013 - itunes.apple.com - 9573

Lots of great textures and layers for making beautiful artwork. Student example here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/69435082@N06/6779684628/in/set-72157629802735527/



Mar 25, 2013 - itunes.apple.com - 8151

Pricey but it is a fantastic app if you want to do any video production with your students.

Mar 25, 2013 - itunes.apple.com - 9272

This is great for teachers to use to organize lesson plans or older students to organize resources. Check out this post for more ways teachers can use in the classroom : http://theteachingpalette.com/2012/02/26/teaching-art-in-the-cloud/

Mar 25, 2013 - itunes.apple.com - 8917

Draw, paint and edit photos. Supports multiple layers for advanced artwork techniques.

Mar 25, 2013 - itunes.apple.com - 7060
iMotion HD

Motion HD is an intuitive and powerful time-lapse and stop-motion app for iOS.
Take pictures, edit your movie and export HD 720p videos to your device or directly to Youtube. See how this was used for claymation: http://splatsscrapsandglueblobs.blogspot.com/2012/11/claymation-with-5th-grade-students.html

Mar 25, 2013 - itunes.apple.com - 9504

Percolator app is useful to create abstracted effects. Nice introduction to using the iPad for younger students. See student sample here: https://itunes.apple.com/ie/app/percolator/id385454903?mt=8

Mar 25, 2013 - itunes.apple.com - 8428
Do Ink Animation & Drawing

Great animation tool useful for elementary art students too. See how it is used here: http://drydenart.weebly.com/1/post/2012/04/the-aliens-have-landed.html

Mar 25, 2013 - itunes.apple.com - 9950
Faces iMake - Right Brain Creativity

Great for primary level students and integrates literature and symbolism too. Student examples: http://www.artsonia.com/museum/gallery.asp?exhibit=610488 Check out our interview with the children's book author that inspired this app: http://theteachingpalette.com/2010/04/02/conversation-with-hanoch-piven-about-his-new-iphone-app-“faces-imake”-3/

Mar 25, 2013 - itunes.apple.com - 7811

Great way to integrate literacy into your art curriculum. Here are some student self-portrait examples: http://www.artsonia.com/museum/gallery.asp?exhibit=627232

Mar 25, 2013 - itunes.apple.com - 7685
Auryn Ink

While this app could never replace the tactile feel of watercolor, this app does create amazing watercolor effects.

Mar 25, 2013 - itunes.apple.com - 8679
Brushes 3

I would have recommended this app as my favorite last year, but no longer. Brushes has changed their business model so that if you want to get layers, it is only done with an in-app purchase. For schools who do bulk purchases, it will not work. 🙁

Mar 25, 2013 - itunes.apple.com - 9469
Phonto - Text on Image

This app allows you to combine photos with text. A great way to combine literacy into traditional art projects. Check out these poetry examples: http://blogs.southfieldchristian.org/pixelsandpaintbrushes/2012/10/30/fall-photo-poems-using-the-phonto-app/



Mar 25, 2013 - itunes.apple.com - 9767

This is an advanced painting app for the iPad. I love the tools, textures, tilting canvas, and blending feature. I have examples here: http://drydenart.weebly.com/1/post/2012/07/painting-and-playing-on-the-ipad.html

Jun 12, 2015 - itunes.apple.com - 9363

This amazing app takes creative work to the next level. Start with a photo of a student work with one main subject and remove all the negative space with the masking tool. A new image can then be placed in the background behind student artwork and even a cast shadow can be added.. The best part about this app is that the student image can be saved to the camera roll as a PNG file (transparent background) and used with ANY other app! For example, use DoInk animation to animate student artwork (PNG saved from Superimpose). Extend it further by loading the DoInk animation into iMovie and have the student record a description or story.

Mar 25, 2013 - itunes.apple.com - 7238

PhotoSync wirelessly transfers photos & videos between iPad devices and your computer. PhotoSync also transfers to Dropbox, Picasa/Google+, Facebook, Flickr, and more.

Mar 25, 2013 - itunes.apple.com - 7639

Nice video editing app, less expensive alternative to iMovie.

Mar 25, 2013 - itunes.apple.com - 9259
Pinnacle Studio

Likely too expensive to add to multiple iPads - but the video editing Pinnacle app has some AMAZING advanced features that make it definitely worth the purchase on a one iPad classroom.

Mar 25, 2013 - itunes.apple.com - 8539

Videolicious is great for creating a movie with images. Students describe artwork or learning process and post directly online.

Mar 25, 2013 - itunes.apple.com - 7371

Great for graphic design or collage. Start with an image and cutout specific parts for college effects. .png file can also be uploaded and added. Text and drawing features are also included.

After my classes learn about featured artists and art history, they take what they learned and mix it with their own creativity to create masterpieces.

Best iPad stylus

There are lots of iPad stylus options on the market but often hard to tell which ones work best.

Nov 22, 2013 - lynktec.com - 32

This tip is very unique- unlike the rubber tip of many stylus tools, this one is made of a soft mesh fabric embedded into the end. It has definitely held up much better than any rubber tips that break or fall off. The best value for the price.
