Constable Digital Kids activity to do at home

Learning and Interpretation
December 19, 2014

As the Constable: The Making of a Master exhibition enters its final month at the Victoria & Albert Museum and with young animators and digital painters anticipating new tablets for Christmas presents; this refresh of the basic instructions for PhotoViva and PuppetPals apps from the two Constable themed families activities this term, should provide a well-timed reminder of the inspiring and creative techniques available. Enjoy! And remember to post the links to your works in the comments section below!

Information, about Constable: The Making of a Master can be found on the museum’s website

Digital Kids: Copying Constable was held on Saturday 25th October until Sunday 2nd November and the recent one day Digital Kids: Constable Animation activity on the 7th December.
