Both of our Kindergarten classes focused on learning all types of LINES used in art for the first couple of art classes! Click the images below to enlarge.
After practicing types of lines in sketchbooks, students used KWIK STIX to draw BIG, THICK lines! During our second class, students reviewed the lines and squeezed LITTLE, SKINNY lines in between with crayola markers.
Once students were experts on lines we were able to talk about 3-D art and create our first SCULPTURE with LINES! (Shout out to master art teacher Cassie Stephens for this wonderful lesson!) Click to enlarge.
Lines were the focus for both Mrs. Walters' EK class, as well as Mrs. Meiner's Kindergarten group.
Kindergarten artists are JUST about done with these lovely creations! More details to come after our watercolor painting adds the final touch next Monday! So proud of these little artists :)
We had our first experience with watercolor paint yesterday with 1st Grade! It went fairly well, even with a Severe Weather Drill. 1st Graders are working on Serapes. Serapes are blankets native to Mexico, and are a great intro project to teach lines to younger art students.
Lines that were taught - wavy, zig-zag, straight, looped, broken, dotted, spiral and thick/thin. The lines were drawn with crayon, and our beautiful watercolor paint was added on top of it. This process is called a resist. The results are not quite finished, but I had to post the images taken so far. Up next, we'll add a cut paper fringe to the end to work on our fine motor skills.
