Patterns in Art for 7 to 10 Year Olds Online Short Course

Course description

In this fun course, we will be exploring pattern, inspired by the natural forms all around us. We will experiment with a range of ways to create repeating patterns and our processes will include drawing, painting and printmaking. We will look at examples of commercial pattern designers such as Orla Kiely and explore the importance of colour combinations and creating harmony within a design.

We will also explore how famous artists such as Bridget Riley, Yayoi Kusama and Gustav Klimt incorporate pattern into their work in different ways and create our own unique artwork in response.

Over 3 exciting sessions, you will learn all the tips and tricks needed to become a top pattern designer and how you can use these skills to produce striking artworks, amazing wrapping paper or even your own fabulous fabric design!
