A comprehensive pack of resources to use with the lower years when studying the elements of Visual Art.
The resources provided explore the elements of line, colour and shape.
Teaching presentations for each element anchor the learning and provide opportunities for students to respond to artworks as they explore meaning and interpretation. The linked activities allow students to experiment with related techniques and each teaching presentation culminates with an art-making task.
Modify the suggested activities or use them as springboards for your own ideas.
All activities have been designed around materials that classroom teachers generally have readily available.

Great resource pack, however I would say the language in the PowerPoints especially 'Line' is quite complex and heavy when its targeting Foundation - Year 2 students.
Hi Adelaide, Thank you for your lovely comment. I am so glad you are enjoying our resources. We have covered line and other areas as directed by the Australian Curriculum. In Foundation to Year 2 Visual Arts, students: - become aware of visual conventions and learn to notice visual detail - explore how and why artworks are created and ways to use and apply visual conventions, such as line, shape, colour and texture - learn how their ideas or subject matter can be developed through different forms, styles, techniques, materials and technologies - learn about how and why artists, craftspeople and designers present their ideas through different visual representations, practices, processes and viewpoints. If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don't hesitate to contact me.
