Lines are an excellent starting point for lessons with Kindergarteners. To begin this line unit, we read the book
Lines That Wiggle.
During the next class period, the students used tempera cakes to paint a variety of lines: wavy, loopy, dotted, dashed, squiggly, spiral, jagged and more. Aren’t these lovely and expressive?
After the painting project, we moved into three-dimensional art. Using wire, pipe cleaners, beads, button and tape the students created line sculptures on a styrofoam base.
I recently discovered Franklin Evan‘s artwork! Look at his amazing installations and paintings and awesome lines.
And now I have some more fun line projects I dug up on the web for you. Check out the blogs that are linked below.
