Designing Tiles and Creating Patterns Through Geometry

Designing Tiles and Creating Patterns Through Geometry New

Students will make use of art materials to create their own geometric tile panels to become part of an alternating or repetitive group pattern. They will begin with a pre-cut paper collage process to create a very familiar alternating pattern, a checkerboard.  They then move on to using drawing materials and technical drawing practices with measuring tools to create their tiles. Students will look for and identify geometric shapes as they view examples of tiled patterns and create their own.
