  • Forms vs. Shapes

    Posted by Lynn Horne at 5/4/2015
    The 4th graders are learning how to turn shapes into forms in their drawings.  Like a shape, a form has length and width, but it also has depth.  Forms take up space.  The use of curved lines, highlights, shading, and cast shadows, all helped to make these forms appear three dimentional on our flat, two-dimentional surface.
