Digital Art

This award-winning Digital IT Art experience can be enjoyed by pupils in Key Stage 2 by exploring Hull’s intriguing past in a completely unique way. Using the latest mobile technology the pupils will be unleashing their creativity to produce stunning visual effects and videos they can be proud of.

Following an exploration of one of the city centre museums, capturing interesting photographs, the children return to the Learning Zone to express their artistic talents using and combining a number of creative apps to add dramatic effects. The final project includes:

  • Transforming their photos by adding amazing effect and interactive adjustable filters such as mosaics, puzzles, motion blur, tile, x-ray, collage and light tunnels.
  • Adding effects to give their phots a vintage or retro feel.
  • Creating 3-D video effects such as wormhole tunnels or spinning globes
  • Turning words and photos into amazing typographic works of art.
  • Combining their digital photos and videos to create collages.
  • Graphic designing to create a persuasive advert to encourage visitors to visit the museum.
  • Creating a professional looking Hollywood style ‘Horror’ movie to celebrate Hull’s heritage.

The day concludes with an exciting showcase of the children’s finished movies and digital artwork on the big screen. All digital content is saved in a digital book and sent to the school so that the children can enjoy and celebrate their work back at school and home.
