Art: Lines and Poetry
This is an art project we made earlier this year. The children began by making different types of lines across their paper with a pencil.
Once the children had their squiggly, straight and pointed lines on paper, they traced the lines with a black Sharpie.
When they finished their lines, they used liquid water colors to paint between the lines. We always keep liquid watercolor paint in our supply closet - the colors are so vibrant!
While each child was working on his art project, I asked questions for the poetry portion of the project. What is your favorite color? What is your favorite food? What is something you are really good at?
This is a fairly easy, multi-step art project that turns out great even if the kids don't paint neatly in between the lines!
