Week #5, Thing #10 Online image generators

This is fun! What great creative tools to use in the classroom and library! I tried a few, but after making posters and editing images, I then tried the "Warholizer" at fd's Flickr Toys. I took a plain photo of an American Bald Eagle (taken by my son on our recent Alaskan vacation) and turned that into real American pop art. I can envision a fantastic pop art display in my library for next year, made up of images of teachers and students, that might spark interest in styles of art or art history. The main drawback for me using this tool at home during the summer: it took quite a while to load the image and have it transformed.

This exercise had gotten my creative juices (trust me, they have been pretty dried out these past few years that I have been spread between the classroom and the library!) really flowing, however, and I am beginning to get a little excited about what fun I might have with classes this fall!
