ART TO GO Activity 9

PATTERN MAKER APP

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

Look at these artists known for pattern in their artwork:

  • Bridget Riley 
  • Sol LeWitt 
  • Frank Stella 
  • William Morris 
  • Andy Warhol
  • Henri Matisse
