Students at CSSC have been studying the art element- line in Studio along with practicing the Studio Habit of Developing Craft. Preschool students may be able to tell you about Larry the Line or sing The Line Song. Some students used marbles and paint to create lines on planets and galaxies. Line sculptures were also created by carefully painting a dab of glue on the ends of strips of paper. Elementary students drew a variety of overlapping lines with warm colored crayons and/or oil pastels and then used cool colored watercolors to complete their artwork. Students reflected afterwards to think about how they developed their craft. They discussed how they used the tools and what they learned about using them. Ask your child about zigzag, horizontal, vertical, and diagonal lines! See if you can find them around your house and in your environment!
