What's the story behind Lively Lines?

The ‘line’ is one of the seven basic elements of art. In everyday life, we all think we know what a line is. But when it comes to art and drawing, the definition can be a little more complicated: a line has length, width, tone, and texture; and it may divide space, define a form, describe contour, or suggest a direction. You can find a line in every type of art. Even the most abstract painting uses line as a foundation. Without it, shapes cannot be noted, texture cannot be suggested, and tone cannot be used to add depth.

Tips for doing art with Little Ones

• Strip children down before you start, or have an outfit that is their ‘art outfit’

• Allow them to experiment with materials. Don’t be too concerned about producing a single final piece.

• Bring out one material at a time – this makes it less overwhelming, and lengthens the process!

• You can often use surprisingly simple materials to work with, like shaving cream, toothbrushes, kitchen brushes, toy cars … all things that you may well have at home.

• Never leave Little Ones alone with art materials!
