During our in-class Art activities we looked at the way light can be used to create great images. The students took their selfies with the iPads and opened them in one of our favourite apps, Brushes. The students then looked at the way light can be isolated on the face and used to create a great visual effect. They used the app to paint over the light areas (although this proved to be very tricky). Part of our learning was to develop an understanding of the use of layers in image manipulation applications. The students created layers and worked on them, rather than the photo itself. They finally chose some colours and painted the layer beneath their painted face. As I’m sure you’ll agree, the results were amazing.
