Students will understand the element of line by drawing curved lines, straight lines, horizontal/vertical lines and other types of lines used to complete this project. Students will find instant success in this visual art project.
BASIC GUIDELINES FOR USING THESE PROJECTS
Students will produce better work if they see a thorough and enthusiastic demonstration. As students work on the projects, do not hesitate to ask them to color inside the lines or to fill in all the white space of an area. Visual art is a discipline just like reading, writing and math. We do not allow students to be sloppy in other areas of learning, so why should we allow it in art.
If each student gets a copy of the worksheet while doing the project, take time to copy the page of samples on the back of the worksheets. Just as students will write better stories if they have knowledge of more words, likewise, they will draw better pictures if they have more information. Art is creativity and creativity is combining two or more things to make new things. The more things you know the more creativity you can be.
On most of the worksheets a size of paper and paper position is suggested. Generally the position of the paper is suggested because the project works better in a particular position. Besides showing the position of the paper, the first step on the work sheet also shows where to begin and approximate size of the beginning step.
Although most of the projects can be done with a variety of medium, my favorites are generally permanent black outline pen and markers. If the project is to be colored with liquid markers, use permanent pen for the drawing so that the ink does not smear when coloring. Regarding art supplies, you get what you pay for and, if it works, use it.
The time it takes to produce these projects will depend on many factors and may vary greatly. Projects will take longer if larger paper is used, if demonstration time is longer, if colored pencils are used instead of marker, etc. Many projects work better if produced in two sessions rather than in one sitting. For example draw the picture one day and color it the next.
