Jean Edwards – Combining Sound and Art

About the Session

An introduction to digital tools and resources that can be used together to combine audio and images as a way into exploring art as a viewer; responding to art creatively or making art that is multi-sensory in nature. These approaches can be used by teachers as tools for teaching art or taught to pupils so that they can be the creators. The tools themselves can also be applied to other curriculum areas.
