In early childhood education children many times feel helpless because they don’t
know what to do or how to start an artistic creation. Also, in order to characterize
a creation as creative has to include a new element, something new that child
discovers or creates and is accepted from the others as a surprise. Lines as
artistic structural elements hide many ideas or can be used as components for the
structure of plastic art works. In the presented study we realized an educational
intervention which included a series of educational activities. Various lines used
as a material, in order to investigate how lines help children’s ideas to come out
and they motivate children’s artistic expression.
