This product contains 8 Handouts that explain how to use the Elements of Art to express mood and feeling. Each handout is digitally designed by me and shows examples of not only what each element is but how to use it to express feeling. There is one handout for each element line, color, texture, shape, value, space, and form. I have found that students often know what the elements are but when it comes to figuring out how to get them to express their thoughts and ideas they need to see examples. Each handout has lots of pictures and visuals showing how to alter the mood of an artwork using each element.

In the beginning students are intimidated by art and think they need to know how to draw well in order to express themselves. These handouts stress how you do not need drawing skills to create art with meaning. They are great for introducing any art project that requires creative thinking, mark making, drawing, or challenges students to tell a story or illustrate an idea.

All of my lessons can be shared with your students through Google Classroom or any digital platform and are formatted to work for distance learning or in the classroom. They are designed to save you time and help your students access the tutorials, presentations, videos, or worksheets as easily as possible. You can find more ready to go, easy to follow, timesaving art lessons in my TPT SHOP.
