We were blessed to host our Digital Arts For All (DAFA) programme at Woodlands Ring Secondary. We taught almost 40 Sec 2 and 3 students and though they were new to using Procreate, a digital illustration app, they were more than happy to try their hands at creating digital art for the first time. Everyone was enthusiastic in learning from us!
They pushed themselves to even create interesting art work and were able to draw inspiration from the core of DAFA - Be Safe, Be Smart and Be Kind - to create a Media Literacy message with their artworks.
But that shouldn’t deter us from using it once we receive the right education.
That is precisely why our DFG Youth Competition design brief this year is the Better Internet Campaign, which is all about creating a safer and better internet for everyone. We are open for submissions and close on June 15.
Schools that wish to enter will get a complimentary 2-hour Digital Arts and Cyberwellness Workshop for your students.
“At this digital arts workshop, there are no crayons and paper. Instead, participants create drawings on iPads, and also pick up media literacy skills along the way.” - Read more at TODAY ONLINE
