Learn About Claude Monet’s Life and Paintings in This Great Interactive Book | PadGadget | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it

"In the App Store, but there are also some incredible serious books that have taken advantage of the iPad’s advances in technology to present readers with something truly unique.

Monet: Colour in Impressionism is one of those books, first published in the iBookstore at the beginning of this year. The book, when released, was immediately successful, snapped up by iPad-owning art lovers across the globe, which has led to a second release of the book, the new Special Edition.

A Paintbrush That Works On The iPad

A Paintbrush That Works On The iPad | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it

"The iPad has one of the sharpest, most responsive touch screens on the planet, and its art apps are incredible. They’re like blank canvases with Photoshop powering the backend. Mistakes can be made and fixed. Experimentations are a filter away. Art is malleable at a whole new tactile level.

“All this magic and still we are expected to finger paint,” writes the team from Artist Hardware. They’re a long-standing art company responsible for some of the most popular paint brushes on the market today. And they recently fundraised a new project on Kickstarter. It’s called the Sensu, and it’s a “paintbrush” that works on the iPad’s capacitive screen. It goes on sale this May for $40.

iPad Art Room

iPad Art Room | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it

"My ‘iPad Art Room’ is a key initiative in the creation of a new learning environment for the diverse students in Visual Arts (Yrs 6-12), enhancing engagement and maximizing learning outcomes through a 1:1 iPad program........ This website provides resources, ideas and insights into the reinvention of Year 6-12 Visual Art programs using the SAMR Model (see Teaching & Learning) to merge traditional art making processes with cutting edge content, techniques and ways of thinking."

John Pearce's insight:

If you're an art teacher or are just interested in art education then this site from Gold Coast teacher and ADE, Cathy Hunt is one to add to your RSS Reader. It contains not only lively posts about iPads and art but also lots of great links and app reviews as well as reference to SAMR.

This would be very interesting to use within a classroom as it incorporates both the use of visual art and technology and has great potential in satisfying generation Y and Z.

Fingerpainting is back as iArt

Fingerpainting is back as iArt | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it

"Yesterday I stumbled across (don’t ask me to trace that thread back to its source) fingerpainters – artists who use the iPad and even iPhone or iPod Touch to create art with drawing/painting apps. I have these apps on my iPad and I’ve shown them to art teachers, but without an inspirational example, those apps just sit there in their folders doing not much. Of course, when you find an artist through your Google Reader of from Twitter lists, you know the discovery will lead to many more discoveries, and so I want to share some of these artists and works, their blogs and where they also live on Twitter and Flickr."

Best Ipad Drawing Apps

Best Ipad Drawing Apps | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it

When famous photographer Annie Leibovitz was asked what's the best camera she said, the iphone4. Why? Because the best camera is the one on you. The same thinking can be applied to the ipad.

"The ipad is the moleskin of our generation – and unlike the moleskin when you’re done sketching you can pull the images onto your computer and clean them up – without having to start from scratch.
With dozens to of creative tools choose from, ranging from $2.99 to $15 you can easily sink tons of money into buying apps you may never use. If you’re looking for easy to use drawing apps with beautiful results here’s my recommendations."
