The start of the year always means an elements and principles of art review for my 6th graders. Rather than having days of lectures, I decided they would do a small art project for each one. I have 12 sections (3 classes a day for 4 days) of my 6th graders. For my sanity I try to keep them working on the same (or very similar things). For our review of lines we are doing a different line project for each day... check out my examples below.
|"Contour Line Mapping"... done art class style|
|"Art with Mr. E's" line design|
|Non-Figurative Line drawing with lines and colors|
|Our "Line Quilts"|
Each project takes about one class period to finish. They are not complicated so it also makes for a great review of CRAFTSMANSHIP. At the end I am going to display them all together.
