With a strong focus on representational art we thought it would be interesting to introduce the children to the concept of non representational or abstract art.
Line, shape and color have been themes running through our summer. This was a different type of art experience that allowed them to revisit these concepts.
We had the children use a black sharpie to draw one continuous line without lifting the pen from the paper. The line can be straight, curvy, zigzagging or loopy. When they were done we invited them to color in the shapes using watercolor pencils.
