Students in 4th grade examine how “line” creates the illusion of 3D. Students traced around their non-dominant hand in pencil and filled it with curved lines, they then filled the background with straight lines and this creates the illusion of the hand bulging out of the page. Students enjoyed this project so much that we then created a fan in the same way.
Next , we moved forward and used line in a landscape drawing, each object was filled with a line at a different angle and a different color. Students enjoyed this project too. Since the kiln is in working order we started to work in clay making a Clay Chanukiah, unfortunately due to schedule conflicts they will not be completed before the end of Chanukah.
