The Art-o-matic 3.0 and Art-o-matic Mini are graphic organizers for teaching critical thinking about art. Based on the FTC Palette by Dr. Renee Sandell, it helps organize a student’s thinking about art, provides tools to build artistic language, and creates a visual image of the student’s annotations and analysis that can then be imported into reports, essays or presentations. It uses a free online diagram maker called draw.io so it will work on any device that has access to the web. First, you’ll need to download the html templates for each Art-o-matic version below to your device. Then visit the draw.io website to begin making your diagrams. These instructional videos will guide you through the very intuitive and user-friendly process.
