I always teach an Elements of Art unit which begins with the most basic element which is line. I use this lesson for my Art 1 kids but it can easily adapted to other grade levels. This resource includes the lesson plan, small-group discussion form, Imagination Workout to get them started, Doodle Notes, information about Expressionism. The project instructions/requirements, artist statement form, and grading rubric can be purchased separately. The PowerPoint presentation can also be purchased separately.
