Patterns and Printing

Date: 4th Feb 2020 @ 8:39am

For Art in Spring 1 we have been looking at patterns. We looked at where we can find patterns and how some of them are made. First we sketched some patterns that we liked and compare them. Next we looked at how the same shape can make lots of amazing patterns by being rotated or reflected.

Finally we got the chance to create our own printng block! First we drew the pattern onto a piece of cardboard then we stuck string to the outline. We selected which colour we would like our pattern to be, painted the string and we were ready to go. We had to decide on our design and whether we wanted to rotate our printing block or overlap the patterns.

We think they turned out pretty good and had lots of fun.

What patterns can you see around you?
