The lesson is introduced with an art observation activity designed to help students learn how to generate ideas for drawing and arranging a composition, and includes a focus on observing lines and shapes, and creating interest through the use of light and dark areas.

lessons and resources are designed to foster student creativity, choice, and independence, and to encourage authentic art-making. Consideration is given to developmental appropriateness, differentiation possibilities, and teacher individuality. For this reason, directions are general, expectations are open-ended, and clip art on student pages is kept to a minimum.
