High quality art education provides students with opportunities to create, perform, produce, present, respond, and connect as they learn to use art for the purposes of communication, creative self-expression, community engagement, and more.
Wixie is the perfect digital canvas for students "conceiving and developing artistic ideas and work." Students can use Wixie's tools for self-expression, to share their learning of art and artist exploration, as well as develop portfolios to demonstrate mastery and reflection on their own artistic journeys.
After learning about surrealism, students use symmetry to develop their own surrealist work exploring good and bad.
After learning about pop art and the images created by Andy Warhol, students choose an iconic image and create their own pop art montage.
Guiseppe Arcimboldo was an Italian painter during the Renaissance. He is known best for his portraits of people that use objects like fruit and books. After learning about his, work students can use Wixie's Stickers to create self-portraits.
Pointillism is a style of painting developed by Georges Seurat and Paul Signac, which uses individual dots of color to create the illusion of shapes and even additional colors. After learning about pointillism, students use Wixie's brush tool and click (no dragging!) to make many small dots that form an image.
Dutch painter, Piet Mondrian, is best known for his work that used primary colors, white and black in simplified lines and shapes on canvas. Young learners can simply fill the Mondrian Coloring page to create their own version. Older students can use Wixie's paint tools to draw geometric designs in his style.
Gustav Klimt's Tree of Life is one of his most recognizable paintings. Search "Klimt" in Wixie and use the Eraser tool to create your own Klimt-style tree using a scratch art-style template.
After learning about silhouettes, students combine silhouettes they have created with Halloween backgrounds to create spooky scenes.
Engage students in learning about different geometric transformations by having them use Wixie to create their own rotation and reflection tessellations.
Have students create art portfolios that include both images of their work and reflections on their process and progress.
Have students use symmetry to explore balance in their artwork.
Students can use the paint tools to draw silhouettes of objects as well as create silhouette scenes using stickers from the Image library.
