Drawing is a good beginning

Did you know we only use five lines and two shapes when we draw? That’s all we use! That sounds easy doesn’t it?

What are the five lines and two shapes? The five lines are the horizontal line (straight across), the vertical line ( straight up and down line), the diagonal line ( drawn at an angle from top left to bottom right or top right to bottom left), the curvy line or wavy line, and the zigzag line.  The two shapes are natural ones (like clouds) and geometric ones (squares, rectangles, triangles, circles).

First we need to practice making the lines and shapes. Get some markers or crayons. If you like to use a ruler, go ahead and get one.

You will also need a white piece of paper.

A good practice would be to draw the five lines on your paper. Begin with drawing 3-5 lines of each kind of line on your paper. An example would be to draw 3-5 horizontal lines, 3-5 vertical lines, etc. Then draw 3-5 geometric shapes different sizes on the same paper. The different lines will divide the geometric shapes into natural ones.

Now color in the various shapes. lines,-patterns,-and-shapes-examples-006
