Digital Graphic Art Logos

In Mrs. Scalan's Art classes 5th graders collaborated in groups and came up with an existing product such as skateboard, guitar, t-shirt, etc, and then decided upon an overall theme for their product design. They learned about logo design and then created their own logo in the Google Chrome App "Sumo Paint". Also, students are to think of a slogan to accompany their logo which connects to their chosen theme. Their final assignment is to create their own individual design for their group's chosen product. Their design must fit within their group's chosen theme.

Google Classroom at Gattis

Ms. Carlson is one of several of our Gattis teachers that is trying Google Classroom with her students. It's a way that students can safely get links to documents, post individual or group assignments, answer questions and more. Files are automatically sorted in student Google Drive folders.  Since RRISD is a Google Apps for Education district this application is available for our teachers to use. Ask your student if they have tried Google Classroom. Here are some of the second graders in action!
