Art Elements: How to Teach Shape to Kids

How to teach shape to kids


Art Elements: How to teach shape to kids. In this collection, you will find a variety of activities, projects, lessons, and ideas for teaching your students the art element of shape. Shapes are the building blocks of drawing and learning to create art. These projects and lessons will help support your efforts–and save you lots of time! As always, my lessons are always tried and tested by me and my students.


Teach The Art Element: SHAPE

Lists of art elements may vary, but ‘shape’ consistently remains a key art element. Much like the fundamental element of line, shape is vital for artists to fully understand. These projects and lessons aim to support you in teaching your students about the art element of shape and offering fun activities to strengthen their understanding of this art element. Not to mention, they are time savers and can even be used to leave as sub plans.
