When Once is Not Enough





Once the students experimented with making patterns from letters they were set.  They created their own naturalistic "biomorphic" shapes.  Then, using rotation, reflection, glides, and other symmetries they created their own compound shapes. 






At this point in time, they are able to understand how negative is just as important as positive space.

    Didn't he do an amazing job! The student was worried when he came to class with the first design of the single zebra. He really wasn't certain where he would be able to go with it but he knocked it out of the park.
