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.
