Woodbury Art: Line

Woodbury Unified Arts Team Site


Students will review the 5 main line directions; vertical, horizontal, curved, diagonal and zig zag. Students will start this assignment by drawing 3 simple lines on a piece of tracing paper. The next step will be to transfer the lines on the tracing paper to a piece of drawing paper. They will trace it 4 times to make all the lines connect to create symmetrical design. The final step is to fill in all the empty spaces with the line directions. Students must consider a pleasing arrangement of color and create a contrast of lines; thick, thin, close together and far apart. This is a step by step assignment that engages listening skill and critical thinking and in the end will result in unique and beautiful results.
