Line, Shape & Pattern

Grades 3, 4 and 5 studied the art work of Gustav Klimt. He is the founder of the art nouveau movement. Klimt's artwork is full of lines, shapes and patterns. As a class we talked about the difference between a line and shape--a line is open and a shape is closed. We then worked in groups making a list of as many different kinds of lines as possible. We looked around the artroom and found inspiration for our lines on the tables, ceilings, floor, posters, flags, almost everywhere!

Student then created a simple scribble-line drawing. They then found shapes in their drawing and had to fill each shape with a pattern using only lines. We then used colored sharpies to create pattern using colors. The results are great!
