Elements of Art: Shape

Today in Art we talked about another element of artworks; shape.
We linked this to last week's lesson about line and explored how lines are connected to create shapes. 
We learned that some shapes in our environment are geometric and recognisable, like squares, circle and triangles. 
Other shapes are more free-form and are called organic.
We are working on developing our observational drawing skills.
We used some of our taonga as subjects for our practise sketches. 
We looked at the lines and shapes in the taonga and experimented with drawing these to make our drawings more realistic.
Here are some examples of our first attempts at still life drawings.
