Pixels and Pictures

A great way to practice using various parts of the computer interface (mouse skills, browser buttons, menus, using bookmarks) we use fun art sites to create digital images. Younger Kids might start off making funny faces or doing sand paintings. Middle and Older Kids learn about basic paint programs and move on to digital image editing.

Younger Kids learn what pixels are in an “unplugged” activity, turning on all the appropriate “pixels” in a grid on a piece of paper to create a hidden image.
