Line wind sock
Lines, Lines, Lines.... This project began with reading the book "Art" by Patrick McDonnell and students pointing out the different types of line that they see throughout the book. First graders then choose one color and divided up their paper using 6-7 lines, and then filled in each section with a different type of line and a variety of colors. They then watercolor painted each section using the primary colors in a pattern until the entire paper was filled with color. I then stapled their artwork into a tube and they cut different types of lines out of strips of construction paper to attach to the bottom, and created a "wind sock".
