Recently, I had the grand opportunity to work with one of my 4th grade teachers and have students create their own self-portraits for “Back to School” night. As I’m not that artistic, I did have some initial concerns with how on Earth to best support students in this endeavor. Luckily, however, there is an amazing app. that has taken the trepidation away. The app. is called Masterpiece by Osmo. It’s a free app., and the only catch is that you need an Osmo in order to use it.
Having been lucky enough to win one of these at FETC back in 2015, I was ever so glad to test out Masterpiece with students this year – even if only to see their reaction of the work they were doing in that throughout their processes.

The coolest thing about the Masterpiece app. is that it captures a timelapse of the student drawing. Here’s a timelapse showing some of the awesome that these great 4th graders composed.
