There is a big difference between using oil pastels and using the Layers Pro App on the iPad. For starters, using oil pastels in much messier than using the iPad. Also, it is much easier to blend colors on the iPad because the App allows you to blend using your fingers. There are some similarities because both the iPad and oil pastels produce an image with very vibrant colors. Another similarity is that you can layer your picture to make it look like your shapes are sitting on different levels. This experience taught me how to use Layers Pro App and how to blend colors together to create value. I believe that this is my strongest piece from the value studies unit because I blended the colors well so there is no banding of colors. Technology is useful in art because it helps students create art in a more innovative and modern fashion.
