Endless line, shape, and colors

| | , ,

In the 6th grade classes, we worked with elements of art, focusing on the LINE topic. The idea of this activity comes from the brilliant American art teacher Jessica Hamilton. You can find her on Instagram mrs._hamiltons_art_class.

You perhaps already know the web site Teachers pay Teachers, HERE you can find amazing lessons and activities created by Jessica.

In this lesson, I was inspired by her activity “The longest line” and suggested to my students to draw an endless line, in order to cover the whole paper. After drawing the line students have chosen a simple shape to draw over the lines. Subsequently, they colored the shape with colored pencils.

You need a drawing paper, a black permanent marker and some colore pencils.
