Lines are a simple yet powerful element of art that artists use when creating their own pieces. After practicing identifying and drawing different types of lines, students will discover how artists use lines to show light and dark, how lines can be used to show texture, and how lines help our eyes move through a picture through observation and open-ended questions.
