What You Get:

  • 6 pages of instructions
  • 3 pages of 1/2 sheet activities (2-3 per page)
  • 6 pages of full sheet activities
  • A version of this resource in a separate file with the British spelling of colour and favourite.

A total of 15 pages

For these art lessons, I’ve designed 3 pages that can be cut apart and pasted into a sketchbook with activities and prompts for other sketchbook drawings and experimentation.  I’ve also included the full-sheet version of the sketchbook activities and a version with the British spelling of colour and favourite.

These activities can be taught all at once or one by one as a precursor to various other art lessons throughout the school year.  When I used them, I used  1/2 page for each art class at the beginning of the year.  I then had my students do an Op Art lesson to put the elements into practice to create an optional illusion.  You can see all my Op Art Lessons here.

You can see all my lessons that teach about the Elements of Art and Principles of Design here.
