Learning about Lines

Third graders reviewed the art element of line. 
Our project is creating a line design in a leaf pattern (lesson adapted from Kathy Barbro's Art Projects for Kids http://www.artprojectsforkids.org/).

Third graders traced a leaf template using pencil. Students chose from oak, maple, or beech leaves.  The students and I looked at pictures of leaves and we noticed that leaves have lines on them called veins. They then added the veins in the leaf drawing.  Each vein created a space for a line design.  Third graders added different line designs.  When the students were finished, they outlined the leaf and veins in black sharpie marker.  Third graders were given a choice to contnue using black sharpie or outlining their line designs in colored marker.  The results were stunning!
