Line #2

The children love art & want to do as much as possible. At group, I explain that their eyes look right at the lines. I explain what a diagonal, vertical, horizontal lines are & have the children make these lines with their bodies.

I will probably read this story if I haven't already from line lesson #1.

I will show art from Piet Mondrian & Van Gogh. I like to show art that the children feel that could create themself.

On the shelf..I put a work that consists of a tray, paint brush, sponge, strips of primary colored tissue paper, & starch in a jar. With a small picture of Piet Mondrian (model) & a demostration recreating one of his masterpieces(teacher model)...the children are off. This work is very popular. And so it should be..every child wants to make their own masterpiece.

I love your line art lessons - I can think of several children who would enjoy them, too! I've always wanted to incorporate more art fundamentals into my curriculum!
