ART TO GO Activity 9


This free app allows you to create your own wallpaper designs from your your own photos. We had fun turning the portrait of Gertrude Herbert into wallpaper as seen below.  A pattern is a repetition of a motif. A motif is a design. When you look closely at a pattern you can see what motif is being repeated. Can you think of some things around your home that have patterns on them or things that naturally create a pattern? 

Ideas for your design

  • Use a picture from a past event you enjoyed
  • Take a  picture of something in your yard like a flower or a bird 
  • Take a picture of a favorite object in your room 
  • Take a picture of your pet
