Enabling Creativity at Dreams Hills
Improving Inkscape Classes
To make my Inkscape classes better, I've been giving kids options on what they can design. As I was doing intro at Dreams Hills Academy, I gave several options, one of them being a house.
Joyline from Dreams Hills Primary
There was a grade 2 student Joyline. From the very 1st minute, of their class after I had done the intro, she was trying and struggling to make a house. She kept asking me questions. "How can I make a house?" "How can I paint different parts with different colors?"
I showed Joyline how to use the fill bucket, which most kids found too difficult. At first,
she make a sketch of a flower. As she was drawing, it seems she got another idea about how to make her work nice. She deleted everything and designed a house and it's surrounding.
