The 6th graders spent much of the first trimester working on beautiful accordion books that illustrate each of the seven Elements of Art. A solid understanding of the Elements of Art is incredibly important in the creation of works of art. The students chose a shape or an image that would appear on each page. They then used that shape or image to illustrate each element of art. For example, to show line, they created a variety of lines inside their shape. To show form, they made their shape look 3-dimensional. They did a wonderful job on their books!
