The art element of line is investigated in this session. Students study the pictures in the Lots of Lines resource, to notice how lines are used to draw shapes, make objects, add detail, show emotion, and tell a story. Using a worksheet, students draw straight, thick, thin, curved, wavy, and jagged lines and then use these skills to complete a picture of an ocean, fence, and house.
Afterwards, students move to the computer to draw another picture. They experiment with the Paintbrush in Realistic and Wacky Paint Modes. Once they are familiar with the new paint tools, they create a picture using different line styles.
