Guest School Gallery 4
Escher-style Art by Students of Art Teacher Karen Weber
in her 2010 4th Grade class at Saint Ignatius Loyola Regional School.
Saint Ignatius is a kindergarten-through-8th-grade Catholic school in Eastern Pennsylvania.
The 4th graders at St. Ignatius study tessellations.
The 4th grade teachers asked if they could create tessellations in art class as an interdisciplinary connection.
Of course it is natural to learn about tessellations in art!
Below are some of the great results of Ms. Weber's lesson.
She writes that "Much of the information I shared with my students was gleaned from this website, tessellations.org. Thank you!"
Ummmm... we didn't pay her to say that. Really, truly, cross our hearts.
Ms. Weber based her lesson plan on "Papercut Method",
a tutorial she found here at Tessellations.org.
I wonder if she knows that the Papercut Method tutorial was written by
a girl not much older than her students? Cool, huh!
