drawing lesson

I started teaching today about line as one of the most basic elements of design. I encouraged the students to just spend half an hour doodling on a page, then filling in the various shapes with dots, dashes, hatching and cross-hatching. The idea was: experiment with as many different kinds of line as possible.

The students' work turned out beautifully.

Here's what mine looked like.

I'm also setting up another site where I'll be posting my lesson plans and resources.
