Sailboats make a great subject for art lessons. Their recognizable shape makes it easy to introduce many art techniques.
For this lesson, our primary focus is a line drawing and color wheel exploration. To get started they had to draw out our scene, this means recognizing and making their shapes and getting them all in the right place. Then, the children were given an opportunity to paint shapes with the primary colors. Next came the part that always fills students with wonder: color mixing! They mixed secondary colors to fill in the rest of their artwork. Finally, we added the element of space with a simple horizon line and sun.
Check out their lovely masterpieces!
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
