What colours really stand out in this picture?
Why do you think the artist called this picture Yellow Islands?

This term in Computing we are going to use technology to paint a picture. Over the next few weeks we are going to learn some of the features of Paint so we can make ‘draw’ or ‘paint’ the best picture we can on the computer.

First we need to load the program – we need to find the correct icon – It might not be on the main page but in the program menu – in accessories!

This week we are going to use the brushes tool and fill tool to create our own version of Yellow Island.

Brushes allow us to leave marks like lots of different types of pens, pencils and brushes.

The paint can lets us fill a space with lots of colour – but be careful any gaps and the paint will pour out!

– remember what colour is in in color (American spelling of colour!) is the colour you will draw or paint.

One of the most important things we will learn today is UNDO – if we don’t like what we have just done we can undo it – take it off the page – in Art with paint this is something we can’t do – What does the icon look like? If you reply on the blog this week you will get a BEST point.

Once we have drawn our picture we will need to save it carefully.

Word Art

This week in computing we are continuing our work with Text and Graphics, this week…

WALT use Word Art.

So far we have changed how text can look in a document, this week we are using Word Art to make our words look even more exciting.

You will find WORD ART in the INSERT menu. Have a good try using the different styles, colours and layout

What effects can you find?

Remember at the end of the lesson how and where (My Documents) we have to save our file – Year Class Name – 2K Mr C

Funky Fonts

Today in Computing we are again looking at Microsoft Word, this time we are looking at the fancy things that Word can do with the characters (letters & symbols) we type, by changing the font.

Important vocabulary.

BOLD – When the text goes darker

ITALICS – when the text leans over.

Underline – When the text has a line underneath like ruling your title

Word – Tool bar

Using what you learned, I want you to use the effects to make the way the words look like their meaning. Calligram – a poem, phrase, or word in which the typeface, calligraphy or handwriting has arranged in a way that creates a visual image.

Now it is your turn to change this document.
