LEARNING GOALS: 

I can use symmetry or radial symmetry to turn into a linoleum block print. I can print my block in an array. 

STRETCH:  

I can explore ways to print my block to form new patterns and symmetrical prints .

Symmetrical Array Printing

 

Sometimes our projects combine many different mediums as well as concepts. This is one of those projects.  We started out on watercolor paper doing a blended wash of colors. Next, we discussed the math concepts of arrays and symmetry.   We moved from simple lateral symmetry to the concept of radial symmetry.  When something has radial symmetry, it is symmetrical along the diagonal axis as well as the vertical and horizontal ones. We drew our designs on a small square sheet of paper that we then transferred to blocks of linoleum. After an extensive discussion on safety, we used linoleum gouges to carve out our designs.  Our final week was spent printing our symmetrical patterns onto our watercolor painting. I was overwhelmed by the wonderful results. They did such a fantastic job using arrays to create art!

    • TECHNICAL SKILLS: How did the  use foreground, middle-ground and background to create space and depth in your painting? What other line methods were used?

    • COMPOSITION SKILLS: Did you create an area of focus in your landscape?  Did you make good use of line and vary line widths and styles to create your foreground, middle-ground and background? 

    • COLOR: Did you make good use of color and use a variety of color to create contrast in your landscape?

    • STUDENT/ARTIST VOICE: What type of landscape did you choose? Research and Sketches

    • ART HISTORY & RESEARCH: What was your inspiration and what motivated you about O'Keeffes work to create your landscape.
