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.

can you teacch how to solve that🙏
Solve for the first variable in one of the equations, then substitute the result into the other equation. Point For: (6111,4111,−411)(6111,4111,-411) Equation Form: x=6111,y=4111,z=−411x=6111,y=4111,z=-411
x=61/11 y=41/11 z=−4/11 x=61/11 y=41/11 z=-4/11

why surface tension is zero at critical temperature
I think if critical temperature denote high temperature then a liquid stats boils that time the water stats to evaporate so some moles of h2o to up and due to high temp the bonding break they have low density so it can be a reason
