Cactus Line Design

August 30, 2010

Taken from Dynamic Art Projects for Children, this cactus line design was a hit!  School begins with the annual fair and rodeo just weeks away.  I chose this no fail activity and kids were thrilled with the results of their oil pastel/watercolor wash activity.  I brought in several types of cactus to show the kids. We brainstormed on characteristics of cactus and then brainstormed on different types of lines.  I demonstrated how to fill up the page with basic humps and then add a variety of designs.  We added lines and spikes for the thorns.  Students were encouraged to use bright bold colors….beautiful creations for the first week of school!
