SESSION 3: Animal Patterns
We are LEARNING to
Use a range of materials creatively to design and make products.
Use textural materials, including paper and fabric, to create a simple collage.
Super Useful FACT
Collage is an art technique where different materials are layered and stuck down to create artwork.
TASK: Recreate animal patterns using a range of materials
Explore the range of animal markings images attached below for inspiration. Look at these four first of all - what similarities and differences can you see?
Think and talk about the patterns you can see using vocabulary such as:
Choose one or two patterns that catch your eye. Use hard and soft pencils to draw the lines you can see; exploring the animal skin patterns.
Then use a range of collage materials to make textures and patterns based on your drawings and the natural markings of a range of animal skins and furs. Manipulate your materials by using layering, tearing, cutting, rolling and gluing techniques to make each collage.
