# Drawing - Art and Craft Grade 1 Revision Notes

## Lines

• What is a line?
• A line is a continuous improvement mark made on a surface

### Types of Lines

• There are different types of lines: straight,zigzag,wavy, horizontal, curved, vertical, diagonal, thin thick lines.
• Show Learners a chart with different types of lines.

Standing or vertical line

Zigzag line

Diagonal line

Dotted lines

Curved lines

#### Positions of straight lines

• Draw a right angled triangle on the Black board or Manila paper and show it to the Learners.
• Explain to the Learners the three positions of a straight line on the triangle. The three positions are: vertical, horizontal and diagonal line.

Activity:

• Let Learners draw different types of lines that they have learnt in groups and let them display their work.

## Shapes

• A shape is an area enclosed by lines.

### Types of Shapes

1. Square
2. Rectangle
3. Star shape
• Let Learners name the shapes and identify lines making the shapes in groups

### Drawing Regular Shapes

• Guide the Learners to draw the shapes by use of free hand.

#### Drawing a Square

• Draw upper and lower horizontal straight lines first and they should be equal.
• Join the two horizontal lines by drawing vertical lines at both ends.
• Tell the Learners that the four lines should be equal.
• Draw a triangle- by emphasizing the diagonal vertical and horizontal positions of a straight line.
• Draw a circle by joining the curve line facing up and curve line facing down.
• Let Learners do an extended activity of drawing a star

### Drawing Irregular Shapes

• Irregular shapes are shapes that do not have dimensions (length, width, height)E.g stones,trees,hills.

Show Learners picture of irregular shapes.

Cow

Tree

Cloud

## Texture

• Texture is the roughness or smoothness of a surface.
• It is also defined as the feel of a surface whether rough or smooth.
• Guide Learners to look at pictures of texture in the pupils books

### Teaching texture:

1. Introduce the lesson by having Learners brush their palms together and ask them how it feels when touching palm.
2. Bring something with rough texture such as a khaki bag or the back of a tree and ask Learners to touch. Ask them how they feel.
3. Observe the Learners reactions when they touch smooth and rough surfaces
4. Teach that the surface of the palm is smooth texture and the surface of the khakibag or back of a tree is rough texture.
5.  Let Learners touch various surfaces and ask them which texture is this?
6. Creating smooth and rough textures in the physical and ICT environments
• Learners can create textures by rubbing over varied surfaces on pieces of pieces of paper using crayons,pencils or charcoal sticks.
• To create smooth textures Learners should put papers over smooth surfaces then rub
• To create rough textures Learners to put papers over rough surfaces then rub.
• Let Learners do activities of creating more textures on their own.
