Google SketchUp

This site is very user friendly and allows you to utilize 3D modeling software and save your work on your school-issued Google Drive.  Be sure and log in to your school-issued Gmail account first, then go to the waffle icon in the upper right hand corner and in the drop down menu - choose SketchUp.  Be sure to view the tutorial video and also name your projects.

Bomomo

This site is very user friendly (for all ages) and allows you to save your image as a .png file (and will go into your 'download' files, so name it and save it and then pull it out of your download files and put it in a place of your choosing on your computer).

Weavesilk

This site allows you to create very cool images utilizing the light-based stokes that spiral and/or mirror in a choice of colors.  The images can then be saved by choosing 'save as' (using the camera icon) and then decide where to save it.

Tate Kids   

This site offers introductions to artists, art making sources, and art games (then use your computer's Snipping Tool to 'take a picture' of the artwork you created, name your file, and then save it in a place of your choosing on your computer).

Mr. Doob

This site is super cool and offers too many choices to list.  Search for the site and either choose one of the drawing options (before you enter) or enter the site to explore digital media options (then use your computer's Snipping Tool to 'take a picture' of the artwork you created, name your file, and then save it in a place of your choosing on your computer).

Sketchpad 5.1

This site is like a free (but simplified) version of both Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.  The 'tools' panel is located on the left and the 'canvas' is on the right.  Practice creating designs using tools, deciding on typefaces, even controlling the 'stroke' and 'fill' of your shapes.  When your design is complete, you are able to export your file in various formats.
