    Objective:

    To be able to draw a non-objective (these are works in which no objects or subjects can be readily identified) usingthe different elements of arts.

    Materials:

    Pencil and RulerSheet of white drawing paperColored markers, colored pencils and crayons.

    Directions:

    1. Using one continuous pencil line, make a design that fills the sheet of drawing paper.2. Allow your pencil to drift off the edge of the paper and return.3. Try to create design that has both large and small shapes.4. Using the ruler, divide your paper into eight equal rectangles.5. Number the boxed areas lightly in pencil in any order you want.6. Using primary hues of crayons, color the shapes in area 1.7. Using light and dark values of colored pencils, color in the shapes in area 2. Using bright and dull intensities of

    colored pencils, color in the shapes in area 3.8. Using the pencil, go over the lines in area 4, make some of the lines straight and others curved. Try pressing

    down on the pencil for some of the lines. This will give a thicker, darker result.

    9. Using a pencil, crayon, colored pencils or markers, create three different textures in area 5.10. Using the markers, draw outlines around the shapes in area 6. Fill in some of the shapes with the markers.

    Leave the others white.11. Use a pencil to add a new shape that overlaps the existing shapes in area 7 to show space. Add to this a

    feeling of space.

    Section: _________________________________

    Objective:

    To be able to create a simple artwork (drawing) through the use of all the principles of art.

    Materials:

    Sheets of scrap paperPencil, ruler and eraserSheet of white drawing paper (oslo paper)Watercolor paint and several brushes (or any alternative)Tempera paint and mixing tray (or any alternative like poster paint)

    Procedures:

    1. On a scrap paper, practice making block letters of different sizes and shapes. Focus only on the letters of yourname or nickname.

    2. Working lightly in pencil, create a design with the letters on the sheet of drawing paper. Arrange for some of theletters to overlap and some to go off the page. Fill the entire sheet of paper.

    3. Using a ruler, divide your paper into eight equal parts. Number the 8-boxed areas lightly in pencil in any orderyou like.

    4. Using the pencil and eraser, draw in or erase lines to rearrange the shapes in area 1, so they have formalbalance. Fill in some of the shapes with pencil.

    5. Using a variety of hues of tempera, paint the shapes in area 2.

    6. Using no more than three hues, paint the shapes in area 3. Repeat one of these colors over and over to createharmony.

    7. Identify the most interesting shape in area 4. Using the brightest hue, paint this area to give emphasis to thisshape. Paint other shapes with dull hues.

    8. Using the pencil and eraser, rearrange the shapes in area 5 to create rhythm. Use watercolor to paint theshapes.

    9. Using watercolors, paint the shapes in area 6. Increase the proportion of one of the colors you use. Notice howdoing this emphasizes that color.

    10. Using the pencil and eraser, rearrange the shapes in area 7 to create a sense of movement in any direction.Use watercolors to paint the shapes. Pick colors that will add to the feeling of movement.

    11. Rearrange similar shapes in area 8. Paint the nearest shapes. Paint the other shapes, adding white to lightenthe value of the hue. In this way the shapes will appear to create rhythm.
