Our talented Grade 7 Visual Arts students ventured into the digital world of stylus drawings on their laptops. As a Microsoft Showcase school we aim to integrate various digital experiences into our curriculum. In this interdisciplinary unit the Science and Visual Arts department fused their interest in microbes and showed how visual imagery enhance learning in science. Students selected their bacteria of choice and created remarkable drawings in OneNote. Students were taught how to use the grid method and explored the basic tools such as pencils, highlighters and pens in OneNote as a starting point. OneNote has a fun function where you can replay your drawing like a movie and learn from one another’s techniques and processes so students enjoyed seeing the step-by-step progression of a drawing.
Lastly, to celebrate their achievements artworks were selected as part of the SEK International School Qatar art collection. These works were framed and placed in the Science department for all to enjoy. Students were thanked for their efforts and received certificates to acknowledge their beautiful, creative work.
