Color and Line features information about two of the elements of art that artists use to create work. Explore lines, the starting point for most artistic creation, and learn about color theory and how to make colors look good together.
In the Subjects of Art activity series, we introduce you to the most common subjects of art – portraiture, still-life, landscale, and non-objective – and instruct you in composing your own artworks using the key elements of each approach.
This activity explores creative writing and drawing using art from the collection as inspiration. We offer guidance on writing creative short stories, while sharpening observation skills and steps to make a gesture drawing.
