We have been working on shape and lines, specifically using the five basic elements of shape, and what fills the space between the lines. We have done a great deal of drawing and coloring to identify shape and fill space.
We will continue working on photographing shapes in nature. One of our nature hunts included finding the five basic elements of shape and photographing the examples. These are in our nature journal.
What is next for us? We will be working with photographs and still life! We are also excited to work with our new drawing history resources to provide illustrations in our history binders.
