About this Learning Opportunity

Bring out your inner digital artist with this fun and engaging two-part session. We will create pieces of digital art using the free and easy Google tools that ALL of our students can access. With these skills, students at any grade level will be able to create a masterpiece AND develop their digital skills at the same time. Darren will also guide you through a full webpage of digital activities with video instructions for a TON of NEW DESIGNS that will take your students from basic digital colouring to creating fantastic vector art. Students will become creators with fantastic finished products that you’ll love to show off in the hallway.
