Fourth grade started their art class off by making art folders that they can keep their work in throughout the year. They got to draw and color whatever they wanted, giving the class some time to show me what art styles and subjects they liked. The relaxed activity led into a silly one for our first lesson in creativity.
Everyone was asked to make a silly face using only lines, and the results were wonderfully unique! Outside of being a good review lesson on types of lines, it was a fun reminder that all people think differently, and that all ideas are welcome in art class.
