Design and composition is the arrangement of line, shape, colour, texture and size in an artwork and these create harmony, contrast, pattern, direction, movement, rhythm and balance within the artwork.
These books investigate the teaching of the essential elements of design.
Each individual book has colour coded pages for the art tasks for upper, middle and lower primary.
There are some photocopiable student sheets as well as teacher evaluations and observable indicators.
There are also columns for the language strategies of studying artworks.
The focus of this series is the teaching of art skills, rather than art project ideas.
Each unit is planned and sequenced so the teacher has a hassle-free art session and at the same time meets the educational requirements of the art curriculum.
