Lines and more lines

This was line activity was intended as a full lesson but sometimes students power through things much faster than planned. A back up lesson comes in handy! It also works the other way-they become so engaged in an activity that it may take two, even three lessons to complete.

The children were shown several examples of landscapes drawn using only coloured line. The task that was set was for them to draw a landscape scene and fill it with lines going in different directions to show the direct aspects of their landscape. They used generic permanent textas as well as connector pens.

    Darcia thanks for your interest in the blog.

    Alisia, the idea for this lesson was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest. From recollection the art was of American barns. There were no instructions, just a pictures. My students were instructed to draw a simple landscape and to show direction using line. That is: curved lines for hills/mountains; horizontal lines for flat surfaces; vertical lines for vertical surfaces and wavy lines for uneven surfaces. I often emphasize the important role of directional line and shading in producing form on a flat surface to students. The aim of this lesson was to extend their understandings of this process and to apply it using just line.

    Sophie, glad you enjoyed reading the blog.
