As a class we do repeated design every year.
Another great design from a 3rd grade student!
There are lots of concepts and vocabulary words you can bring into the process of creating repeated designs.
Words like: random, orderly, overlap, no-overlap, contrast, edge, middle, composition, border, frame, organic, geometric, figurative, abstract, etc.
The one above by Ms. Allison took quite a bit of time.
As did the one by Mr. Brennan P. in 6th grade. Here he’s not quite done.
A first grader interprets the assignment in one way and in this example I would have quizzed him about organic/geometric…
And the student above I would have asked, “is it a random or orderly design?”
She’s just getting started here, but what a smile!
A nice orderly design with a border/frame
A nice orderly design, 2nd grade I believe.
The finished piece by Brennan P.
Just getting started on color….
And here, it’s done, another nice random design, I believe a 6th grader.
Floral motifs are always popular points to begin a design
An orderly design based upon a rabbit. I would have quizzed the student to make sure she knew if it was a random or and orderly design. It came out very nice.
