I have started this blog to show and share my art sketchbook which I have created during my time as a secondary art teacher.

Repeat pattern print, year 8/grade 9
Students based their repeat pattern prints on observational drawings. They created a design on A5 paper. This was photocopied twice, scanned, printed and photocopied again so that when all four pieces where placed together they created a repeat pattern. This was attached together and coloured using watercolours and then outlined in black fine liner to give the pattern greater definition. The second image shows how a repeat pattern print could be repeated indefinitely to create wallpaper.
