Willard City Elementary Artists use our Tessellations Animal Templates!

The Artman posted his students’ math/art projects that used our Animal Template Tessellations! Tessellations are a great way to build coordination and patterning skills! See more about Artman’s process below.

Artman posted many photos of his students using our Animal Template Tessellations. A variety of designs from the pack were used. These included the elephant, lizard, fish, butterfly, dog, turtle and spider. The pack includes so much more, however! See the full display of designs at the full web guide HERE.

This project was posted by Artman at his WordPress blog Artmanews on April 30, 2012, entitled “Tessellations -part 1.” Visit the full post on his students’ tessellation art the link!

After the tessellations were traced onto paper, the students incorporated a lesson in color theory to complete their project. They chose complementary colors, which are two colors on the color wheel that are directly opposite each other. This student chose blue and orange as his complementary colors.

Instead of merely coloring in the tessellation in one flat color, the interior details were filled in with the complementary color to help distinguish the patterns from each other.

Lovely work!

Thanks to the Artmanews for this post!
