Discussion: line:
What is line?
Why do we need it in art?
How does it change or lives everyday?
Use dry erase board as visual show all different lines
Talk about where we see them in nature.

Read Harold and the purple crayon or another book that illustrates line

Born to the families of a goldsmith and watchmaker,
