Elements of design can be found in every single artwork.
This first project of the year is focusing on Line. Line is used all the time in creating artwork, the question is whether or not Line is being used CREATIVELY.
To explore line variety, the classes are working on imitation stained glass creations. Kindergarten to 5th are using Line in a variety of creative ways to create their stained glass.
K through 2nd are working on line and shape variety.
3rd and 4th grade are working on organic vs. geometric Line.
5th are using the Lines created by the letters of their names to create more symbolic stained glass artworks that represent them as individuals. These stained glass works tell the story of the student, as many stained glass images tell stories.
