I asked my students to draw a pattern from nature. We made guide lines such as... no straight line, no geometric shapes, there had to be four or more colors, and their could not be any solid white. The kids did wonderful on their paintings but the real fun was when they painted their hands. I called this 'mature finger painting'. Let me tell you, the students loved it!
I was so inspired by Freckle PhotoBlog! Be sure to check out her amazing images.
