Grades K-4 spent some time in the beginning of the year exploring Line, Shape and Color in various ways. See their amazing work below!
Kindergarten and First Graders have been learning about and reviewing their lines, shapes and patterns. Line and shape are two of the most basic Elements of Art that we can't draw and paint without.
We viewed an experiment involving the mixing of oil and water in a cup. We stirred it, shook it up, but in the end, they always separated again: oil on the top and water on the bottom. This explained why, when we painted watercolor paint atop our oil pastel lines, the paint bubbled off of the lines, keeping them shining bright.
