Reveal the hidden personalities of objects around you! Is your stapler a hungry monster? Or a doorknob a winking friend? Personification is when you give human characteristics to something that is not human. You will draw on a photo to create a new character out of an ordinary object. When you're finished, you'll post to the Challenge 1 Share page.
Photography challenges us to look, wonder, and notice. This thought process applies in many areas of life, because curiosity and observation are key skills of scientists, problem solvers, and creative thinkers of all sorts. When we take our photos and enhance them through personification, we challenge ourselves to see something in a new way, which can lay the foundation for innovation, storytelling, and a joyful outlook on the world! Plus, annotating images is a basic technology skill that can be used to create diagrams, label maps, capture thoughts and questions about an image, imagine and design functional or fantastical objects, and more. Visual communication is powerful and effective, and creating our own images helps us be savvier consumers of images created by others.
You don't need to use a special drawing app -- there are Markup tools right in Photos on your iPhone or iPad. Tap Edit while viewing a photo and check it out! However, you can use any drawing app you wish. We've suggested a couple below.
