Children   will respond to basic elements of visual art, such as line, design, and   texture.



  1. Sand is finely ground bits of stone.
  2. Pebbles are small, rounded stones that have been worn        smooth by erosion.
  3. Designs are combinations of lines, shapes, and empty        space.
  4. Lines may be straight or curved, long or short, thin or        thick.
  5. Textures range from rough to smooth.
