Cleaning up in the art room is inevitable. It doesn’t matter if you teach High School or Kindergarten, there are messes to be made, and therefore, messes to be cleaned up! Managing this less-structured time can make or break you as an art teacher.
That’s why, when we find out about a cool tool like Piktochart, we want to shout it from the rooftops! If you haven’t heard of Piktochart, you really must check it out. Piktochart is an amazing online design tool that allows you to create your own infographics with ease.
In this assignment, students are inspired to create their own visual aides to assist with an aspect of clean up in the art room. It could be as simple as a sign to put by the pencil sharpener, a more comprehensive clean-up map, like those seen in this post from “The Teaching Palette,” or even a detailed step-by-step visual process for cleaning brushes by the sink. Each participant chooses if he or she wants to make the map by hand, on the computer or a use a little of both.
Inspired by Jon’s work, I decided to try out Piktochart for myself and was blown away by the possibilities. Although there is a paid version that offers an astounding array of choices, the free version has enough features to create some truly dynamite visuals. The platform is extremely intuitive and took me just a few minutes to figure out. You can start with a pre-designed template or create your own.
Cool, right!? I hope you click on over and check it out. Be warned, it’s fun, so save it for a time when you have a few minutes to spare!
