This presentation will address a way to teach students how to use Google Drawings to create artwork. Many schools have the Google Suite for Education but are not utilizing all of the components. Using Google Drawings will solve the issue of not having enough art supplies and can be used cross curricular with many topics. It allows students to express themselves using technology. It will teach students how to use the basic shape tools and advance to using Google Drawings to create mosaic and self portraits.
