This was our first ever lesson using Atelier Art. It is our most extravagant curriculum purchase to date, so I was a wee bit nervous. I'm happy to report success!
Atelier Art is a DVD-based art curriculum originally designed for schools without quality art programs. Something Tessa and I especially like about Atelier is that it shows several children Tessa's age completing the projects in a school setting. It shows realistic examples of student work as well.
Today's techniques involved the use of various types of line. The project, a caterpillar.
|Tessa carefully watched the instructor and students model each technique before trying them out for herself. This part was a warm-up exercise completed on scrap paper.|
|After drawing the head and body, Tessa drew straight, jagged and curvy lines onto her caterpillar.|
|Tessa got extra creative and used a variety of line techniques within this segment of her caterpillar.|
|Lots and lots of lines!|
|Tessa put the finishing touches on her caterpillar.|
|Tessa couldn't have been prouder of her artwork. I'm proud too. She did a great job!|
