2nd grade abstract names

Second grade artists learned about the difference between lines and shapes. Lines start and stop at two different points. Shapes are closed because they start and stop at the same point. Using the lines from only our names, we created shapes by overlapping our names. We wrote our names in many different sizes and directions, taking care that each new name overlapped an old name. We then colored in the shapes we found.

Kindergarten Line Art

Kindergarten Artists learned about lines in their first day of Art class. We looked at photos of buildings, roller coasters, oceans, animals and flowers and found different line types in each image. We then practiced drawing each type of line. First, we drew in pencil, then we traced our lines in sharpie and then we traced again using colored markers!
