Line Art Project Leaves

Students learn how to make a line art project with a leaf theme. Overlapping the shapes gives them a fun transparent look.

There are seven Elements of Art that are considered the building blocks of art, and finding art projects that connect to one or more of them helps students understand them better.

The official list of Elements is: Line, Shape, Color, Space, Form, Value, Texture. Some websites may have a few less, but believe this is the list that most art teachers follow.

As you can imagine, this project works really well for learning about LINES. Learning how to put lines down on the paper in the way students want will always help them improve their skills.

This idea of making shapes with lots of lines is easy to adjust for many grade levels. The main project shown above would probably work best for those that feel pretty confident in their drawing, and the variation below would be good for those just getting started.

Materials for Leaf Line Art Project

  • Drawing Paper. Don’t substitute it with copy paper or construction paper. The surface will get fuzzy, erasing might cause holes, and the colors will generally not look as bright.
  • Pencil. The Ticonderoga brand are the most reliable, make nice dark lines when you need them, and are the easiest to erase.
  • Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tips. Stabilo Markers. They have the best colors, the best tips, and last the longest.
  • Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent markers make nice black lines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them in areas with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath for table protection.
  • Stabilo Markers. The large pack provides lots of fun color choices, several shades of each color, including a few choices for skin. The tips are perfect for coloring, and there’s even a promise that they will work after being uncapped for 8 weeks!
