I am not a fan of worksheets in replace of big, creative art projects. But to learn about the elements of art, these worksheets are fun, quick and leave room for creativity.
These Elements of Art worksheets can be printed off all at once for a sketchbook that would be perfect for students who finish early. Add some blank pages in the back and you are ready to go! The pages are very self-explanatory and the kids should be able to do most of it on their own. Most pages have minimal color and can be printed easily in black & white.
I am going to use these workbooks as students arrive for my class (as a "bell ringer" for the first 5 minutes.) They can pick up where they left off each time we use them.
These would also be good for easy and mess-free substitute teacher activities.
Many worksheets are boring. These are fun and allow your students some room for creativity as they learn new concepts.
