Adobe Fresco Line Portrait with Experimental SurfacesThis ‘Adobe Fresco Line Portrait with Experimental Surfaces’ is a unit of work where students draw digitally and then create surfaces with different media and then print their digital drawing onto the exciting surfaces.  Students will:

  • Photograph themselves or each other, thinking about focus, background and lighting.
  • Drawing digitally using the free Adobe Fresco App, learning about tools and layers.
  • Experiment with a range of media to create interesting and creative surfaces.

This download includes:

  • A two-page unit of work that includes 6 stages to the project and homework ideas.
  • An eight-page step-by-step student guide. (You need no knowledge of Adobe Fresco as it’s all in the guide!)
  • A 7-Slide PowerPoint full of good examples (pictured above)
  • An assessment rubric.

There is also another version of this resource that looks at Fernand Léger instead of experimental surfaces. You can see it here.

  • You read my mind!

    I just went to a workshop this summer and learned this technique as a mixed media technique, but it was geared toward visual arts teachers. We had to draw art and use paint, etc. There was not a digital component to the workshop. So imagine my surprise when I looked in here and saw this. I really want my students to not only use digital art, but to realize that they can manipulate it and use it with other media. I’m so glad I found this website!! Everything I have bought so far has been extremely professional, looks beautiful, and will be helpful to me in the classroom.

    Thank you for your feedback.

    Sarah Crowther – The Arty Teacher

    I set up The Arty Teacher because I have a passion for my subject that I want to share with other art teachers around the world.

    I have been a high school art teacher for over 20 years, so I understand what it’s like to be in front of a class of students, often with very different abilities and attitudes.

    I wanted to develop resources that would help teachers to bring out the best in every student in every class. I also wanted to free-up staff from time-consuming lesson preparation to let them focus instead on delivering exciting, motivating, dynamic lessons, supported by excellent resources.
