Drawing with triangles!


The home-school art class explored drawing and creating with a triangle this week.

With this week’s drawing lesson I broke the drawing down to it’s simplest components—squares, circles and triangles.

Today we focused on the triangle and how to add other shapes to the triangle.

Every young artists can draw a circle, a square or a triangle. And that’s all they need to know to be able to draw…anything!

Beginning with a simple shape the kids added shapes step by step to create several lively drawings.

I think the kids were amazed at what they could draw.

One moment you have a triangle—something anyone can draw—and the next, look what happened! It’s turned into a fantastic piece of art.

As you can see, the kids did an outstanding job in their drawing using a basic shape like the triangle. Where can they go from there? Wherever their artistic imagination will take them!
