Learning patterns and textures can be a lot of fun. We read a basic pattern and texture book and went through a lot of examples before starting the project.
- The lion was drawn step by step and we followed a photo from national geographic magazine.
- The face and mane were created using texture rubbing technique. We used simple textured objects we found around the home.
- We painted a solid background and created patterns when it was dry. We did practise this step first, by painting patterns on separate sheets of paper. Understanding this concept was tricky enough for this age group.
It was a fun process and I love the way these little lions turned out.
