This article describes an exercise appropriate for all grade levels. This exercise is based on a book of Picasso's contour drawings called "Picasso's One-Liners," which combines a delightful assortment of one-line drawings with accompanying one-line quotes. Students are given a stack of copy paper and a black fine-tip marker. Students then take turns suggesting objects for the class to draw (animals work especially well), using just one-line. A great follow-up to this project is to give each student a single piece of wire, about a yard long, and ask them to bend this "line" into an object. (Contains 2 resources and 1 online resource.)
