Learning Objectives

To teach Children about the Elements of Art -­‐ Line, Shape, Form, Colour, Value, Texture and Space

Teachers

Amala Aiana, Kruti Buch, Sara Vetteth Swastika Srinivasan and several visiting teachers

Duration

1 hour x 10 sessions (we did 2 parallel batches for ages 3-­‐6 and 7-­‐12)

Method

Each week we showed examples of art, architecture, products etc that showcased the theme for the week (line, shape etc..). After some discussion on it-­‐ the students did projects on the theme

Some exercise examples

Line – younger kids did continous abstract lines using charcoal sticks in both hands simultaneously

younger batch used a paintbrush to make an abstract contious line of pait which then turned into a map by adding small details with sketch pen

Older batch did continous line portraits while looking at a print out of a face. The portrait was done using pencil and then outlined in sketch pen and some parts were coloured with colour pencil

Texture – Older students did the exquisite corpse project -­‐ an imaginary animal with the head of one animal, body of another and feet or tail if a third and they collaged or coloured it with a focus on texture -­‐ they used bits of paper, dals etc to create texture

Shape and Form – Older students drew an outline of an animal -­‐ rhino, snake etc to see its shape -­‐ then using recycles materials like sponge, pipes, rope etc they created the same animal in 3 D to explore form -­‐ for this session we invited a guest teacher the artist Ravindran to help the students understand form.

Space — younger batch were given a big letter (the first initial of their name) on water colour paper. They divided the background into 4 and used oil pastels and water colour to pattern each section leaving only the letter white. We talked about positive and negative space
