Just a fun name for a line lesson and a great reminder that art exercises the brain in different ways than other academic areas.

Students used marker on small squares of paper. I usually give them 6 squares. Each square is limited to one or two colors so that they focus on creating lines. The last square is a free choice.

I ask them to decide what type of line or shape will fill up the square-curved, wiggly, swirls, zig-zag, angled, straight, dots, circles, etc. They can use pattern or not.

Once complete, they mounted them onto construction paper. All about the process on this one.
