First Grade Line Monsters Collage from the book "Lines that Wiggle!"

First grade artists are thinking about the art elements. We talked about what things artists use to make their artwork fantastic. We checked out the lists (and posters) of: Line, Shape, Color, Texture, Pattern, Space and Form. Next, we read a book called, "Lines that Wiggle" that had all sorts of lines in it. 

We practiced drawing lines by brainstorming different sorts and having children draw them on the board in a list. We used cut paper shapes to create our monsters, puffy paint to create the line "spaghetti" and oil pastels to draw patterns and hair. 

Learning Goals:
I can draw various types of lines.
I can name various types of lines.
I can create a collage.
I can use puffy paint to create a line.
