student work from our recently completed painting/color unit: Cultural Quilts.
Students chose a culture and looked at copies of patterns (based on the culture’s artwork) to create their own set of patterns. We learned about different color schemes…then students painted the patterns using those color schemes.
Some of them struggled with the painting aspect, and I know a few of them didn’t like this project at all. It WAS my first time teaching this however, so there are kinks I still need to work out.
