Visual Arts Elements Resource Pack - Middle Years

Teach Starter Publishing
Zip File | 14 resources | Grades: 3 - 4

A comprehensive pack of resources to use with the middle grades when studying the elements of Visual Art.

The resources provided explore the visual art elements of line, color, shape, form, and texture.

Teaching presentations for each element anchor the learning and provide opportunities for students to respond to artworks as they explore meaning and interpretation. The linked activities allow students to experiment with related techniques and each teaching presentation culminates with an art-making task.

Modify the suggested activities or use them as springboards for your own ideas.

All activities have been designed around materials that classroom teachers generally have readily available.
