So, we've started learning about the basic elements of art this month.
Since both last year and this year I am teaching art to two classes it means that some of the students had me for art last year, too. And, that means, I have to get creative and find new lessons to introduce the basic elements.
And that is how we came to be doing line pumpkins this past week.
I found a wonderful lesson on one of my favourite art blogs, deep space sparkle. Her lesson looked like this...

It was a great lesson on different kinds of lines (straight, curvy, spiral, thick, thin etc) but ended up also being about colour a bit as I encouraged the students to play with blending when colouring in each section.
I wish I had more to show you but my darn phone takes the world's worst pictures!!!! (Pretty sure I complained about that last time on here, too!!!!) I need to get with it and start carrying my camera around with me everywhere I go!
Stay tuned for some (blurry) pictures of our colour lesson on primary and secondary colours!
