The Elements of Art (Review)

This cat project demonstrated our understanding of how to use the elements of art in an effective way.
Students used a variety of materials (pencils, color pencils, colorful sharpies, brushes, and water colors)
in order to exhibit a variety of lines, shapes, colors, textures, and patterns. Students were advised to include at least two elements in their compositions. 

    We also had a discussion on how science has elements such as hydrogen, carbon, and oxygen; Literature has settings, characters, and plots; and music has elements such as rhythm, melody, harmony, and tempo.
