Pattern is one of the Principle of Art.
Principles are a way artist can organise the elements of art.
Here is a list of the art elements and principles:
This term we will be focusing on the principle of pattern. In class this week we have discussed the art elements that we can use to make patterns. Have a think about these.
We made up a definition of a pattern: A pattern is something that is repeated.
Have a look at these paintings and see if you can spot any patterns. Comment on which one you like the best and why.
On Thursday Night I was lucky enough to attend a Profession Development session with the author the new art books ‘Guide to Visual Diaries’.
We have been working on setting up a process with the year 3-6 students on how to use a visual diary as a tool to record information, test out ideas and processes and as a record of our learning in the art room.
This profession Development session game me any ideas and planning tool that I have already started to use in the classroom and in my planning for next term.
A great way to be inspired and get those creative juices flowing.
This week is Collaborative Art Work Week. Each class is taking part in creative a large group art work on a canvas for our school fate.
The school fate will be held in March. Each class is asked to produce a canvas to be sold at a silent auction. Today the years 1/2 students took a mid term break from Performing Arts to complete their class art work. Some of the year 5/6 students also completed their canvas today.
The years 1-6 students will be focusing on printing. Years 1/2 students also completed their back ground with some ink blowing to create a patterned, textured and bright background.
Hope you enjoy the photos and seeing the canvases at the fate.
