When lights hits an object, it casts a dark shape on the surface of the opposite side of the object. The dark shape is called a shadow.
Did you know you can create art using objects you find at home. Start a collection of “beautiful stuff” : corks, empty aluminum cans, popsicle sticks, wood scraps, string, yarn, bottle tops, parts of broken toys and tops from dried markers! These are only a few ideas.
Think about what you can do with your beautiful stuff: sort by color, shape, size or texture. Arrange, stack, balance, and make patterns with your stuff to create a work of art!
Keep your collection in a bag or box so you can start all over again!
In this activity we will work with paper to create a sculpture.
Lines can show movement, create details, and describe textures. In this lesson, you will learn to identify and draw different types of lines and shades, and create drawings that describe all kinds of weather.
Artists love to use different lines when they draw! In this activity we will discover and create different types of lines, go on a scavenger hunt, and create a drawing.
In this activity, you will go on a shape hunt to discover the shapes that are all around you, invent your own shapes, and create a shape drawing.
