A Virtual Reality Twist on Paintings

In this lesson, students take a classic well-known painting and put a virtual reality twist on it with their own interpretation. Students work in groups to view artwork and then design and plan their own which they create in the Tiltbrush application. Tiltbrush is a VR experience that enables users to create and design in a 3D immersive environment with a VR headset.
