This term Ms. West’s Visual Art classes have a strong focus on the ‘Elements of Art’, using lines and experimenting with the diverse elements of a line. This could include perspective, thickness, and curvature, bending and breaking lines, creating patterns and angles. Some students connected lines to make pictures, and some painted in-between the lines to make patterns. With an endless number of configurations to be made by introducing the use of parallel lines and colour, students then expanded by adding shaded segments. Many of the interesting designs and patterns can be seen in the pictures below and definitely brighten up the gallery walls of the FGPS library space for term 1.
