An important element of art and design for our students to learn about is form. Form refers to the three-dimensional nature of an object. For example, 2D=height & width. 3D=height & width & depth. Students looked at Legos to spice up the traditional "draw & shade a cube" lesson. Once they had successfully completed one Lego, they were challenged to combine 2 or 3 Legos into a structure and draw that. They were reminded of the importance of parallel lines as they tried to figure out why an object looked all right on the bottom, but not on the top! They used pastels on black paper, creating a very vibrant exercise in form. Check it out!!!
