Lego Sketch Board
Out of all of the art centers that I have set up in my room I think this excites me the most. Kids are naturally attracted to building with Legos so I thought they would be a great addition to build the concept of 3D art and sketching outside the box for my 3rd - 8th graders. I plan on offering prompts for this station, such as "Build an Abstract Work of Art using Only Primary Colors" or "Create a Landscape That Is Only 10 rows by 10 rows," etc. I may pair my students up for some challenges as well. Eventually, I hope to collect enough Legos and boards to have an entire class set, but that will take a while. In the mean time, looking forward to seeing what types of 3-D sketches the students come up with.
