Line, Line, Everywhere a Line!

Students at the McGlynn have really enjoyed reading Lines that Wiggle, by Candace Whitman. In each class, we have taken time to explore line and how it is used in art. We found so many different types of line just in our classroom alone! In this warm-up exercise, students in Mrs. Scafiddi’s 3rd grade were instructed┬áto fill their paper with lines that touch, but do not overlap. As the spaces became smaller, students were challenged to fill the remaining areas with tiny line patterns. These students worked for two days on these amazing designs. The results are fun, colorful and truly inspiring. I am so proud of these students!
