Line Exploration Painting

Line Exploration PaintingThis project is a great way to introduce the element of art, line, to Kindergarten students.  Students use their kinesthetic intelligence to experience lines through movement – imitating the movement (or lack of movement) with the use of their arms.  Students compare and contrast a variety of relevant images of objects, buildings, and logos that illustrate different line expressions as well as works of art by artists such as Kandinsky and Miro.  Students develop their manipulative skills to draw curved, straight, wavy, and a multitude of other lines using oil pastels.  Then, with watercolor paints, students add color and fill in the spaces between the lines.  As an enrichment activity (especially for early finishers), students are encouraged to invent other lines and implement patterns on top of their dry painting using oil pastels.
