This exploration of the elements class began with our super cool Fugleflick Elementary Musical to introduce the elements of art. View it here: vimeo.com/38449478
Students looked at El Greco's painting, View of Toledo using the Google Art Project
They used the digital ink on the interactive board to draw over the image to show line, shape, form. They also zoomed in to spot texture, zoomed out to study value, space, and color.
Then students headed out to the courtyard with cameras in groups to take pictures of the elements all around them.
