Elements of Design Books

In fourth grade we start the year by talking about the 7 elements of design: Line, shape, form, value, color, texture, and space. We discuss what each element is, different examples, and how they are used in creating art. This took us about 4-5 weeks. I supplied each student with:
  •  Eight 5x3 pieces of card stock (1 for each element plus a cover page). 
  • Colored Pencils, erasers, and #2 pencils
  • Sand paper or fabric to use for "texture"
  • Examples of each element of design- I display this through a power point. 
  • A hole punch and a brass fastener for the last day.
 Here are some examples of the finished pages!

We spelled "value" wrong on this one.
