What’s a wallover?

That’s what the fifth graders created using an interactive website from the National Gallery of Art’s Kids’ Zone.  According to the site, wallovers are “symmetrical designs painted on a virtual wall.” 

This website was a fun way to prepare for an upcoming stamp printing project.  We also reviewed important art vocabulary like pattern, repetition, rhythm, and unity. 

Here are two beautiful designs  the yellow group created from simple lines and dots!
