It?s me, Mrs.Ramirez.
And I?m going to preview, the Drawing Station.
At this station, you will learn about the Art Elements of Color and Line.
And the Art Principles of Balance and Unity.
Don?t forget, Elements and Principles are 2 of our Quack-a-Demic Vocabulary words.
If you hear Elements and Principles, be ready to say ?Quack! Quack? and be ready to tell all about it.
What are the Elements and Principles, you ask?
Elements are the things that you will see in your art, like colors and lines.
Principles are the ways you will use the Colors and Lines to show Balance and Unity.
Today, you will draw Balance lines on shrink film using a sharpie and a straight edge.
Then, you will use harmonious colored pencils to fill in the spaces.
Are you ready to give it a try?
First, hold the straight edge firmly with one hand.
Slowly press and trace a straight line with a sharpie across the film.
Move the straight edge to a new location.
Hold it firmly and trace the next line.
Kindergarten artists will draw three lines.
First grade artists will draw five lines.
Second grade artists will draw seven lines.
Now, write your name neatly on the film.
You are ready to choose your 3 harmonious colors!
Remember! Harmonious colors look great together.
Will you choose the primary colors? Yellow, red and blue.
Or will you choose the secondary colors? Green, violet or orange.
Maybe you like the warm colors. Yellow, red and orange.
Or perhaps you like the cool colors. Green, blue and violet.
Whichever colors you choose. The colors will help create unity in the project.
Colors on the side with the sand and texture with your 3 harmonious colors, so that they show balance together.
If your colored pencils break, you will need to use the hand sharpener.
Be careful. That blade is sharp!
Hold the sharpener firmly over a black dish.
Carefully put the pencil in the hole and begin rotating the pencil.
You will start to see the pencil shavings coming off the side of the sharpener.
Continue rotating the pencil until your can see the sharpened tip in the sharpener.
Pull out the pencil carefully and tap the pencil shavings over the dish.
You are ready to keep coloring.
After the film is baked,it will look like stained glass.
