customizing google doc headers with a google drawing

With back to school here, sometimes docs need to have a little slice of your class theme or personalization with your bitmoji! I used google drawings to create a few different headers for my docs. Along with changing the doc background color, I thought personalized headers would be another way to make students feel the excitement and sense of community for back to school. The doc below has a color that isn’t glaring white, which some readers prefer, and would be a good background color for some math graphs or images.

The drawing is transparent, so any color can work with it. To see another sample doc click here. Just create your drawing as you like and insert it as a header. I also customized the drawing size to be about 3 inches in height and cropped as needed.

google drawing- warhol donuts

We've been discussing complementary colors and increasing the use of art terms while working in google drawings this semester. To show our understanding of complementary colors we created a Warhol style donut display. Below is the google slide deck I used to introduce some of his work and review terms I would like students to discuss while creating their own donuts. These terms include space, edges, shadows, and depth. To make a copy of the slide deck use file- make a copy.
