Example 05: Theme - Hidden Treasures

Students chose a theme from the three options (Hidden treasures/Light and shade/My viewpoint) and worked from a primary source that was based on that theme. The students designed and realised a repeat-pattern composition on A2 paper or fabric.

The students were learning to observe, record and analyse their primary sources using line, tone and colour as well as a variety of media. Students researched pattern and the principles of design and examined the work of well-known pattern designers.

Students applied their understanding of pattern-making to select an area of their drawings that would be appropriate to use as the motif for building a repeat pattern.

Evidence of process, including annotations, reflections on their decisions and development work as well as the realised design were collected in their Visual Art sketchpad.
