I love love love doing this lesson with Kinder or First Grade. The results are always so beautiful and the kids are completely engaged in the process. Using a small rectangular piece of cardboard as a printing tool the students created these amazing magical like structures. The cardboard piece allows students to create structures before they can actually draw them. A line becomes a tool for thinking and developing ideas.

I want to thank Cathy Weisman Topal for the inspiration for this lesson.

Does this drawing feel like it has motion?  Where?

How did the artist do that?
