Pinterest and ipads in the art department

Pinterest is a fun way to create and share a visual, digital collection of ideas for different projects and interests. Essentially it is a visual discovery tool that allows people to collect ideas on ‘boards’ by ‘pinning’ anything of interest they might find on the web, or re-pinning something another Pinterest user has already posted.

The HOHS art department have already found their boards on Pinterest to be a great help for exam groups in Years 10 to 13, especially for those students searching for inspiration from other artists or looking to research exam topics.

pinterestThe recently donated ipads (thanks to the Parents’ Association) have certainly proved to be a very handy and convenient way of making the Internet more accessible to pupils of all ages when working in the art department.Art-and-ipads
