We transitioned our art making from lines to shapes in many of our classes. In our 4-6yo classes, students have created still life paintings of a piece of fruit and a vessel, using contrasting colors and white. (click on all images for more pics)
Students in this class then went on to creating a variety of free-form, organic shapes, exploring the properties of color.
In our 7-10yo, 11-13 yo, teen and adult classes, students are also looking at shapes and drawing from observation. (all works below are works in progress)
