Website Y Creating WordArt Free

Word Art is a great tool available in Microsoft Office that enables you display text using a variety of fancy, decorative features. These include:

  • making the text follow a curved line or downwards slope;
  • rotating the text around so that it is slanted;
  • adding shadow to the text;
  • changing the colour of the text so that it is a blend of two or more colours;
  • making the text appear with a 3D effect.

Each Word Art element is treated as an 'object' on the screen which can be moved about/repositioned on the page or slide quite easily.

Website Y Using the Drawing Tools Free

Many people associate primary ICT artwork with using painting programs, although it's important not to forget to teach children how to use object-based graphics packages too.

As I've discussed on this page, the main differences between painting and drawing software is the way the different elements of an image are stored:

  • Painting programs let you paint virtually onto the screen as if it were a canvas and store images by remembering the colour of each of the dots or pixels in the image.
  • Drawing programs let you create pictures made up of shapes or objects and store images by remembering the: position, size shape and colour of each of the objects within it.
