When two ends of a line meet, they make a shape.
Organic shapes combine straight and curvy lines in a variety of ways and have no specific form. They don’t have names because they are never the same.
They are often found in nature. But you can find them inside too. Hunt for organic shapes either inside or outside your home.
How many did you find? What did you notice about them? Draw them.
Now make your own organic shapes by drawing different kinds of lines and connecting them. What happens when a straight line meets a curved line? Or a spiral meets a zigzag? Would you like to give your new shapes a name?
Now pick a place that had at least three different organic shapes in it and draw it. Did you find even more shapes as you drew?
