Drawing and Painting Lessons

May 02, 2016

Drawing is one of the most important activities you and your students can do. Drawing not only provides the basis for other creative activities – like painting, sculpture and printmaking – but it also provides a direct link with reading, writing and especially mathematics. The connection between drawing and geometric shapes and measurements simply cannot be denied. And do you know what else? Drawing is the single most accessible form of art available. All you need (to begin with), is a pencil and a sheet of paper.

This is a wonderful mini lesson in which children will create works of art using basic shapes.

This lesson requires planning and problem solving, much like a math problem or science experiment. Students will see that scribbles can become much more.
