Artists can use lines to create shapes. Artists can also use lines, shapes, and colors to create imaginative works of art. The kindergarteners will use lines to create imaginative shapes that they will transform into the ideas that emerge from their imaginations.
Drawing My World
Artists use the world around them as inspiration for their artwork. An artist can communicate what life was like in specific time and place through the images they create. The Kindergarteners will create pictures that are inspired by their lives to understand the differences and similarities they have with others.

We will make artistic choices using the Elements of Art to create a visually impressive artwork.
Grooved Ware Pottery
