In this lesson, we are going to study rabbits—a precious subject in art. Using the elements of art, line and shape, we’ll define the structure of rabbits, but most important in this lesson, we’ll cover texture, another element of art. First, we’ll look at paintings by master artists and learn how they interpreted rabbits in nature. Then we’ll use the elements of art to create our own pictures. In Project 1, we’ll draw rabbits in a garden using lines, shapes and texture to create a lovely composition. In Project 2, we’ll continue using lines and shapes to draw cartoon rabbits wearing jackets.
Element of Art:
The Tale of Peter Rabbit
