Digital Sketchbooks: using tablets on a museum art visit
""... I have been able to express my art and ideas in a simple and easy way, whether itís for homework or just for fun." (Yr 9 student)
""Ďa quick, eclectic way for the students to generate design ideas based on first hand observations, whilst at the same time generating images derived from a cultural experience." (Art & Design teacher)
This resource is the result of a collaborative project with The Marlborough Church of England School to explore the ways in which tablets can support a Museum art visit.
Watch our short films to see highlights of the workshops we ran, as well as lessons learnt by all involved.
Download our supporting PDFs that provide an overview of the 3 apps that we used in our workshops, as well as ideas for art activities using tablets.

We hope our resources inspire you to bring your own devices to the Museum, alongside your paper sketchbooks!
