Lines and patterns and frogs, oh my! This is a simple drawing and painting assignment that I did with my 7/8th grade students. We started out discussing elements of art and principles of design. We focused on lines and patterns. Our subject was the frog. To help with the drawing portion I created a handout with pictures of frogs on them. Sorry, I don't have my handout on this computer but will try to add it to a later post. When it came to painting, I asked that they use bright colors and focus on placement of colors. They did a great job.
