Maker project: drawing (empowerment)

I feel as if technology is a big part of society and it’s super useful. For our last project in maker we did a project on drawing we learned 6 different strategies on ways to draw. The first one was word art. I wasn’t the biggest fan of it. I found it a little boring but I think if I tried a little harder it would’ve been better and more fun. The second one I also found it a little boring but not quite as much. It was sketch notes. Sketch notes are where you, well, make notes that are sketched. The third one though was much more fun this was our portrait. For my portrait I drew myself snowboarding and surfing. It was super fun and I really enjoyed doing it.

 The next one was also fun… this was our still life drawing. For the drawing we drew fruits which was hard, but fun.

Our last one wasn’t quite as fun but not too bad. It was our logo design. We made our own companies and then we drew a logo for it. I think that I felt “empowered” from this because really learned the capabilities of my iPad. One of the most cool ones was the trace tool. The trace tool is where you could trace over a picture on another layer, and then you can delete the layer with the photo and then you only have your drawing. This is super cool because you can’t do this on normal paper. I think that we should be very thankful for the technology that we have nowadays because it helps with a lot of things, not just drawing.
