Your tasks: Manipulating by hand an image

1ºA - MANIPULATING AN IMAGE on PhotoPeach


1º B - MANIPULATING AN IMAGE on PhotoPeach

Visual perception activities

Eye Exercises for Better Visual Health:

These activities are designed for improving your Visual Information Process Skills: Perception, Tracking, Focusing, and Eye Teaming.

Image and Perception


Do not forget!


  • Task 1: Find in the magazines in the classroom 4 images of the different finalities we have studied. Cut them out and glue in a piece of paper.
  • Task 2: Manipulating an image. Find a large photograph you like: a favourite musician, car, landscape... Cut your picture into horizontal or vertical strips. Make the strips as wide as you like. Create a feeling of distortion by guing the strips onto the space provided, using a certain order you have previously decided. For example, light to dark, different heights, every third strip upside down, etc. Although it is a simple activity, it can have interesting results if you first think about what effect you wish to create.

Sand art

Let's see if you like this video. You can practice next summer on the beach, but, if you cannot wait for that, use a table and flour, although I'm afraid it will not be the same.

If you want more information about this Israeli artist, Ilana Yahav, and have a look to her work, you can visit her website here.

Another one that Andrew has told me:


An activity for the computer classroom

Be a sand artist
I know that it is not the same, but there is an online software to create your own sand picture. Its name is  thisissand. Use the mouse to start and the sand begins to fall. To change the colour use the letter "C" in your keyboard, to erase what you have done use the letter "E", and with the arrows you will use the different colours you have selected before. Try, its funny!


And... this happened:
SAND ART everywhere in our classroom.

Language and visual communication

We are surrounded by images ...
