Visual arts: line

Visual arts

Activity 1

To draw contours (individual) [lo 4.7]

Blind Contour Drawing

In this exercise, we will be exploring line . Remember, there are many different types of line! Look at the examples below and see how many different types of line you can identify:

When you draw you are not allowed to lift your pencil off the paper! The line you draw must be continuous. You are also not allowed to look at your drawing while you are busy. Keep your eyes on the object you are drawing. You should only look at it once you have completed the drawing. Try not to draw only the outlines of the object but to trace all the edges of the object’s shapes and/or forms.

 Use a pencil to draw an organic object, for example a fruit, a vegetable, a leaf, a twig, a pebble, etc.

 Afterwards you have to draw a man-made object, for example a watch, a piece of clothing, a shoe, a bottle, etc.

  • Remember to make the drawing to explore the object’s lines and not to make a “pretty” drawing!

Modified Contour Drawing

Use the same two objects from the previous exercise for this activity. However, this time you have to use a pen and you may look at your paper while you are drawing. You are still not allowed to lift the pen off the paper while you are drawing.

Activity 2

To create a pattern (individual) [lo 4.7]

Take the two drawings you have made in the previous exercise, repeat them in any way and order them to create a pattern.

Example 1
Example 2:
Example 3:

Once you have created a pattern you can use pastels or wax crayons, in other words colour, to decorate your pattern.

Activity 3

To make finger puppets (individual) [lo 4.6]

The finger puppets made during this activity can be used for the drama exercise.

Step 1:

First draw the face of the person or head of the animal you want to use in the drama exercise on a piece of paper. Add colour by using pastels or wax crayons. Tear or cut the face or head out once the drawing is finished.

Step 2:

Paste the face or head onto an empty toilet roll.

Step 3:

Use wool or torn strips of paper to give your character some hair.

Step 4:

You can also tear or cut out legs and/or arms to add onto your character.

Step 5:

Lastly, you can use pieces of waste cloth to clothe your character. The cloth can be glued onto the toilet roll.



The learner will be able to analyse and use multiple forms of communication and expression in Arts and Culture.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

4.6 makes masks crafts, artefacts, costumes, collages or puppets to use in a presentation;

4.7 draws on technology and nature in the environment for stimulation and communication of visual ideas.

Questions & Answers

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.

sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
Kim Reply
or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
what is nanomaterials​ and their applications of sensors.

what is nano technology
Sravani Reply
what is system testing?
preparation of nanomaterial
Victor Reply
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
