This is 2 short, teaser worksheets to accompany your art lesson on patterns.
The artist, Laurel Burch, uses patterns in a colorful, exciting way in her art. (Fabrics, clothing, greeting cards, posters, pictures, more!)
The definition of pattern is included at the top.
The students will identify the patterns in each of Lauren's art and then draw them in the small boxes.
Next, there are boxes for them to make their own drawings of patterns in the large blank spaces. Let them be creative!
Once inspired and finished with the patterned worksheet, encourage the students to create their own patterned design/picture on the back.
This worksheet can also be used as a preliminary sketch for a larger work of art that motivated students will want to create. It is meant to supplement your lesson on patterns, and it not a complete art lesson in itself.
The second worksheet is to identify patterns by name, and draw them in the blank. The pattern name is scrambled on the left hand side. (waves, circles, diamonds, stripes, chevrons, checks)
Open Ended, is usually a student directed process, where students can draw their feelings, emotions, and/or reactions to the art work in the blanks provided. They can choose to copy the designs, outlines the shapes/forms, or even just draw one aspect. Anything goes. Open ended is not assessed and there is no right or wrong. Just encourage active participation in some form.
