Quilling with 1st graders!  This is one of my favorite 1st grade art projects. this year I stretched it a bit more.  We reviewed the variety of lines we learned as kindergarteners (check out that project here). Then we looked at some examples of artists who use quilling in their work like Lisa Nilsson. Students then created their own quilling projects focusing on line. Students who needed an extra challenge are encouraged to create shapes.  This took 2 classes. During the last half of the second day, we did observational drawings of our quillings and discussed the difference between 2D and 3D work.
