Tessellation Art


In the last week of Term 2, Mercury class took part in our art project of pattern, creating tessellation art pieces inspired by M.C. Escher. Tessellation originated and became a popular art form during the ancient Greece era, using 2D shapes to create repeat patterns. Inspired by the artist M.C. Escher, the children in Mercury class practiced creating repeat patterns using stencils of irregular shapes. The piece on display used irregular shapes to create animal pop art, using the concept of tessellation as our pattern unit of work. Well done to everyone for some fantastic pieces of work!
