Kindergarten Line and Shape Art

The kindergarten classes had lots of fun this week drawing lines and shapes with metallic markers. First we drew large shapes.... a triangle, a circle and a square. We tried to OVERLAP our shapes. Then we added straight lines, curvy lines and zigzag lines to our shapes. Then we drew vertical lines, horizontal lines and curvy lines on our paper and added circles to finish our abstract design. This is an amazingly project and it is fun to see how EVERY child's work is unique and different. Last year we created a similar project using scratch board. The metallic markers were really fun and a nice variation.
