World Art Day is celebrated on 15th April, with the date being chosen to honour the birthday of Leonardo da Vinci. We have lots of fantastic resources to help celebrate art across your school on this day.
We have a few different art tools for children to use in Purple Mash. These include painting tools, animation tools and 3D design tools. Take a look below at the different tools and how you can use them in the classroom:
2Paint is a very simple paint tool which allows even the youngest children to choose simple, 'real-world' drawing tools to use on screen as well as progressing to more advances tools such as Flood Fill or Shape tools.
2Paint a Picture is a drawing tool which helps children create various painting effects and combine these effects to make pictures.
If part of your Art topic focuses on a famous artist, check out our factfile templates. Each template has background information on each artist, to help your class with their research.
We also have two blank famous artist templates, so that the children could write about any other artist. Find them here.
