Here’s another drawing program for you – Seashore -and again the price is right. It’s a free download.  I’m now working with 4th and 5th graders with this.  Our latest task is working with photos.  Because this program has the ability to flower1use layers you can change a color photo to black and white and add layers for adding colors to different portions of the picture.  Using the transparency level of each layer allows just a light tint.  I’ve been having kids take a picture of themselves using the built in camera on our macs and then changing the colors by using different layers.  We’ve had some very interesting results! …and they’ve been having a lot of fun while learning a simple version of a graphic program.
