90 Days of the Every Day Drawing Challenge on the iPad!

Another month has gone by and that means another 31 drawings for the Every day Drawing Challenge! Sorry to be a couple of days late with the new list, but it has been a busy week with a new session of Enrichment and the Art in the Valley art show, which I am helping to hang later today.

Reflecting on the month of March and the drawings done, let me say that many are really just quick sketches, while others have taken hours to complete. Each day I grow more familiar with painting on the iPad, and my favorite apps thus far are ArtRage, ProCreate, Brushes, and Sketchbook Express. I keep planning to try out new apps, yet I have barely scratched the surface of the four named above. Each time I think I’m going to switch, I think of another tool or effect within one of the apps that I would like to try out.

Some of my students are working on self portraits using Sketchbook Express right now and are having great success. They are learning about layers, opacity, and color sampling; all new vocabulary for fifth graders. I hope to be able to publish those drawings within the next few weeks. It is truly amazing what one can do with making art on the iPad.

My students have also been drawing for the challenge, and their work may be seen on our class Facebook page in various albums there which are grouped by weeks within the challenge: www.facebook.com/pages/Mona-Lisa-Lives-Here. The Instagram Photos album contains all of my EveryDayDrawingChallenege drawings since the beginning on January 1, plus a few random photos: www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.360804727345743.85302.188940301198854&type=3

Here are this month’s drawings. If you click on a photo, you can view the gallery as a slideshow and still read the captions.

I hope your April brings spring weather and a drawing each day. Please share your drawings with me on the Facebook Page or my Instagram account – the links are on the tasks sheet below. Here is the list of tasks for April:
