Elements of Art: Space
This week, the element of art we are studying is Space.
Here are some different techniques that artists use to create space in their work. Maybe you could try one of these drawing tasks?
Or, you could choose something you want to draw and try out one of these techniques in your drawing.
Another option would be to experiment with these creating space techniques using photography; you could try taking a picture of something at different angles, you could zoom in or position objects in a different way.
There are so many possibilities for you to explore…
One of your art tasks this week is to try ‘Shadow tracing’ to learn about positive and negative space. Here’s an example of my shadow tracing artwork. I decided to use black and a bright colour for mine. Maybe you want to try out some complimentary colours for your positive and negative space?
Geometric and Organic shapes
This week, we are looking at the element of Shape as part of our Art topic.
Geometric shapes are usually simple and have a special name, such as square or circle. they don’t often appear in nature.
An organic shape is irregular and often curvy. They appear often in nature.
Here are some organic shapes we saw either in the garden or as part of our daily walk/exercise. Can you notice the different shapes we found?
Remember, to keep an eye out when you are outside to look for organic shapes.
For some reason, the link in our grid for maths is requesting you to register so you can play-if you are having this problem here are other alternatives to help with time.
This game can be set at different levels to practise telling the time:
This looks at telling the time in words ‘o’clock’, ‘half past’ etc.
Topmarks has a selection of activities:
Please use time worksheets available on twinkl (First Level)
Here is an updated grid for week 4 with these changes if it is helpful.

Your rainbow writing task this week based on ‘La Luna’ introduces a new colour; orange for openers. The document below will give you examples of different openers you can use in your writing. Maybe you can think of some more of your own…
One of your tasks this week for our Elements of Art topic is to investigate lines and complimentary colours. I had a go at it myself and have some pictures of each step you can follow:
- Divide your page into different sections by drawing lines. Decorate each section using different types of lines.
You can use this song to help you find out about types of lines
2. If you have paint it works really well for the background but don’t worry, you can use pencils/markers instead.
When we created colour wheels in class we used the primary colours red, blue and yellow to mix secondary colours green, orange and violet. I painted each section of my page using a primary or secondary colour of my choice.
There’s a colour wheel below to help you.
3. Complimentary colours are colours that look nice when used together. If you look at the colour wheel, you can find complimentary colours directly opposite each other.
Blue is opposite orange; so blue and orange are complimentary colours that look nice together.
Complimentary colours are:
- Blue and Orange
- Red and Green
- Violet and Yellow
When the paint had dried I used pencil to trace over the lines using complimentary colours. If the background of a section was blue, I used orange to trace over the lines in that section. Here’s how it turned out:
Hope you enjoy making your own art using lines and complimentary colours. This is quite a big project that you can spend a while on. Remember, you can try out your own ideas too.
Home is where the art is
If you are looking for some art activities to keep you occupied, National Galleries of Scotland will be sharing a range of activities for all ages and interests every day.
They will be presenting live talks, quizzes to test your art knowledge, trips through their archives with their curators, plus challenges and projects to keep everyone entertained and busy.
It should link in nicely to our Elements of Art topic if you find yourself in a creative mood.
