Pattern Projects and New Due dates

Examples of Pattern Project (7th grade) - each individual square has a different pattern inside it, just like the patterns you are to create for your homework. When we repeat those patterns they become motifs. Click on the images to enlarge.

7th grade - Your new project will incorporate what you have learned about lines and how to create them. You'll be using patterns to create motifs. A motif is a sequence of images or a design which repeats, over and over again. In order to create the motif you have to first create the pieces to your motif. This is your homework assignment which is Due Thursday, 9/23/10.

You must create a minimum of 20 different patterns. You should draw each of these patters in your sketch book in 1 inch squares. Draw patterns that have overall dark, light, and in-between values. To decide whether your pattern is light or dark or something in the middle, look at your small pattern from across the room so that it's hard to see the details. What you'll notice from far away is your patterns value - either light or dark. Try doing this while you complete some of your patterns. You'll need some light valued patterns and some dark valued patterns for this project. Good luck.

Art 3 - Your Duck stamp paintings are due at the end of class Thursday, 9/23/10. You all have done very well but don't quit before your painting is complete. Detail, detail, detail - that's what is going to make your duck stand out. Add extra colors where possible, like in the reflections in the water. We will discuss the new project in class on Tuesday. See you in class - Mr. Kelley
