Description

Class Experience

I've been working as a teaching artist in NYC for more than 20 years. I have always adored Escher's work and spent hours looking at it when I was younger. Part of its appeal for me is these incredible interlocking tessellations! I love the idea of opening the door for students to understand a bit more how Escher and other artists create them, and to helping them to create their own. 
As mentioned, they won't completely finish their project in class with me. I hope they'll want to see it through after class!
SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR CLASS:
**-At least two 3"x3" square pieces of cardstock (you can cut from an index card or file folder or very lightweight food box) - something that is heavier-weight, yet still easy enough for your child to cut on their own, since they'll be cutting into this to make their tessellation templates. (If you have more than two, they can explore more tessellations on their own after class.) (PLEASE NOTE: this really needs to be a very sturdy paper or cardstock. You can't make an effective template using regular lightweight paper.) Learners may only use one, but if they have more than one, they can create different pieces and choose their favorite.
-Scissors
-Scotch tape
-A pencil
-A few sheets of white paper on which to draw/color their tessellating patterns - at least 8.5"x11". Ideally, construction/drawing paper, so it'll take color nicely, but printer paper will work if that's all you have!
-Colored pencils or markers for decorating
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Scissors will be used.
