Art lesson #1: Draw what you hear.

Art lesson number 1: drawing what you hear.

Art lesson number 1: drawing what you hear.

My kids know how to draw a line, a dot, a circle, a triangle, and a rectangle. They’ve done the curved line and straight line lessons. So now it was time to combine all those lessons into one art lesson.

This lesson is taken from the website: http://www.kinderart.com

So I gave them 4 instructions in this order:

1) Draw four lines from one end of the paper to the other.

2) Draw five circles anywhere on the paper.

3) Color in 2 circles.

4) Fill in three more areas on the paper how every you want (squiggles, lines, dots.. .whatever you want).

My kids came up with two completely different drawings. Then we did it again. They came up with two more completely different drawings.

This was simply an exercise in creativity to let the kids follow directions, but still explore their creativity.
