A line is a dot that went for a walk
                                   -- Paul Klee
In September we had fun going for a walk with Paul Klee, 
and with Harold and his Purple Crayon 
exploring all kinds of lines and all kinds of projects!

GRADE 5: Curved Lines, Straight Lines 07901

Create a 2D combine of numbers of our zipcode. Then...


Grade 5 will step back and do a little sophisticated exploration of color and the color wheel.  

We will investigate color vocabulary and observe some of the special relationships like:

  •  primary
  •  secondary
  • complementary
  • warm and cool
  • analogous
  • tints and shades


GRADE 4: Leaves and Radiating Line Designs
Fourth graders explored variations of lines using the motif of a tree leaves in a cluster design. 
Principles of rhythm and repetition were also considered.

  
                                                                                               


GRADE 3: Castle and Sun in the style of Paul Klee
Third graders used the inspiration of Paul Klee’s “Castle and the Sun” variations, to construct a 
rhythmic composition of lines, curves and spaces on the background of a repurposed book page.
Students used a palette of primary, cool or warm colors to "paint" the composition with watercolor pencils.














GRADE 2: Fish inspired by the book, Only One You
 Second grade students created fish in an oval format using divisions of space and lines of varying types 
to make a unique fish. Collaged paper fins, tails, etc. were added. Inspiration: Only One You by Linda Kranz.


GRADE 1: Cactus Plant and Pot
First graders explored variations of lines using the motif of a plant pot and cacti. Students learned how artists use line to create outline, decorative patterns, texture and contour.
