I made this poster to hang in the room that has lots of different types of designs and patterns. I used black and white so that the students could decide on their own colors.
|Another project based on Logan's Dynamic Art Projects for Children.|
I actually refer to this poster quite often. I refer to it when I need a quick reference for line, shape, pattern, texture, or repetition. I am constantly talking to the students about how they can elaborate on or change the patterns in the poster to make them their own. For instance, what if you added a tiny heart to the tail of the spirals in the bottom left corner? Or, what if, instead of coloring the rectangles black in the pattern on the right, you drew stripes there? Over time they stop relying on the poster. They begin to think up their own things completely.
This is an example of one art project that students completed using the poster as a guide. It is Gustav Klimt's Baby (Cradle).
