Elements of Art:
Scratch Shapes provide the ideal way for students to explore and develop the elements of line, pattern and shape. Lines are varied, they can be straight, curved, close together, form shapes, and used to create patterns.

  1. Vary the thickness and direction of lines to create depth in your design. It can create the illusion of emphasis and movement
  2. Repeat and combine different lines to create patterns.
  3. Combine line and shape to fill a background space.
  4. Lines can be used to make shapes and type both geometric and organic.
  5. Areas scratched out around and between shapes can be used to highlight positive and negative areas.
  6. A pattern is created when any mark or line is repeated. Patterns created from line and shapes can create the look of texture, such as scales on a reptile or pebbles on a pathway.
