Do you walk the line?

Here is a great place to get a new spin on teaching line as we are all looking for updated ideas for our fall lessons.

Students will be introduced to one of the basic elements of art—line—by analyzing types of lines used in various works of art to help students understand how artists use line to convey movement and mood. They will then create a layered landscape using lines and color.

Warm-up Questions

If this painting could move, would it move quickly or slowly? Is there something about the lines that make you think so?
