Inspiring Life-long Learning for 25 Years
Form drawing is not only a beautiful experience and art, it is a curriculum element that strengthens thinking, planning, and will forces. The line’s movement requires sustained attention, a fluid pursuit, and spatial orientation. Here, third graders used three unbroken lines, and later illuminating shading to create this form.
Second graders made moving parts in their lesson books to illustrate St. Martin cutting his cloak into to warm a needy soul. Heroes and saints such as Martin are part of the second grade curriculum to foster and uphold the good and noble acts of humanity. Students this age are becoming keenly aware that a choice between goodness and lower desires exists. These stories encourage them to become heroes, while the trickster companion stories recognize the complexity of life.
