Pixel Art in Google Sheets!

The other day my 6 year old son came home and begged me to go on to the computer to show me what he did in technology class. Of course we jumped on to Google Classroom (proof that 6 year-olds can use Google) and he showed me his project - Pixel Art in Google Sheets!

How awesome is that?!?!?!?! 6 year olds being introduced to the amazing world of spreadsheets in a fun and exciting way. Jack talked to me about what pixels are and how he could create whatever he wanted in this sheet! That deserves a huge shout-out to his technology teacher - (Liz Dowiak) , school (South Elementary), and school district (Perkiomen Valley)!

Once he went to bed I took a look and of course this was developed by Alice Keeler. If you would like to read more about Pixel Art - click here for Alice's blog post.

You can use Alice's sheet by clicking here - it will create a copy for you in Google Drive.

I have created a GIF followed by a 3 minute and 9 second YouTube tutorial in which I take you through the steps, how to alter some of the pixel colors, how to alter the size of your sheet as well.




GO!!!!
