Drawing 2D and 3D Shapes

Grade: First

Duration: 36 weeks

This course focuses on intersections between art and math - drawing lines and shapes. To balance structure while still allowing creativity and imagination to flourish, each lesson enables children to first practice drawing lines and shapes before using their new skills to create novel artwork. Famous works of art that incorporate the studied shapes illustrate and inspire. Supplies needed to complete the 36 exercises are minimal and inexpensive. Sculpting clay or Play-Doh, a ruler, drawing paper, and drawing implements such as pencils, pens, and markers are all children require to complete these lessons.
