Thank you to everyone around the globe who has already submitted images. We only need a few more to start creating our ice core art composite image! I am in awe of the amazing drawings and different media being used. Keep using those markers, crayons, paints, scissor, paper and whatever other art tools you can find!

<![CDATA[Mosaic Software- Free online!]]>Sat, 15 Sep 2012 03:04:55 GMThttp://icecoreart.weebly.com/blog/mosaic-software-free-onlineSeveral folks have inquired about the software we are using to create the ice core art mosaics. We will be using a program that requires manual programming but here are a few options I have found that may be easy to use in the classroom. A simple Google search will yield several other programs. Please feel free to explore these other options. Use the buttons below to download these software packages. Please note: I am not familiar with either of these programs and encourage you to search for a program that works for you.
