Today we are going to be looking at the difference between man-made and natural materials. Your task today is to collect a variety of natural and man-made materials and then, using paint and a large sheet of paper, create a repeating pattern (natural, man-made, natural, man-made) by printing with the materials. As you are creating the pattern try to identify and similarities and differences between the materials and how they print. For example, does one group of materials absorb more paint that the other, are the textures all the same with one group, can you identify which are the man-made and which are the natural materials just from your pattern?
Have fun, I'd love to see you finished patterns on the blogs later!
