Tricia Fuglestad, Theresa Gillespie and I have been planning our presentation, “There’s an App for That: iPads in Art Ed” for about a year now. Theresa and Tricia live in Illinois, so we prepared using online tools such as Wikis, Google Docs, Skype, DropBox, and more. Unfortunately, Theresa Gillespie notified Tricia and me that she would not be able to attend the conference, but as Tricia put it, she will be with us in spirit.
Tricia and I created our presentation using Keynote on our Macs. We each assembled slides that will inform our attendees why we use iPads, how we manage them, how we manage digital artwork, how we use iPads with students (apps), and what our future goals are.
We reached out to the developers of the apps we have been using to let them know we would be sharing their apps in our presentation. Many of them offered to provide us with free app codes. We are taping the codes to the back of our business cards and giving them away as door prizes! Some of the apps that we will be giving away, include, Sonic Pics, Faces iMake, Photo Tropedelic, Halftone, Doink, FaceJack, Dramatic Black and White, Grungetastic, NIR Color, PhotoArtista Oil HD, PhotoArtista Haiku HD, PhotoArtista Sketch, Rainy Daze, Romantic Photo, Simply HDR, Snow Daze, Vintage Scene, Artisan Paint and more.
I can’t believe that our presentation day is almost here! I started following Tricia’s work approximately 7 or 8 years ago, so this opportunity to present with her is truly mind blowing!

I added it as a tab at the top of this B.A. Art Website too.
Wish us luck!
