|Be inspired by nature's own patterns... the ones on animals! It's amazing just how many animal patterns there are, and you can use them in your own Art Attacks too.|
You will need:
|What's this pattern then? Black streaks on white paper. And what does it remind you of?|
You guessed it - a zebra!
|What about this one? Black streaks again - but this time on orange paper. What do you think?|
Of course, a tiger. A very recognisable pattern.
|Black spots on white this time. Look familiar?|
That's right - it's a Dalmatian!
|And if you make the spots and blobs bigger, what do you get? Bit more tricky this time...|
|It doesn't matter what you use to create your patterns either. Black pieces of felt on yellow isn't the only option. Consider brown felt tip on yellow paper, or a pencil crayon. What's this one then?|
Any idea? Yes - they all belong to a giraffe.
|So just take a look at lots of animals, and be inspired.|
Here are just a few examples of some other animals you could copy the patterns from.
|...and when you've been inspired, you can use them for lots of Art Attacks.|
How about wrapping paper, picture frames, or book covers?
|You could even use fabric paint to create tiger T-shirts, or how about patches on jeans using acrylic paint. Maybe even old strips of material to create these... Neil's underpants ?! Experiment!|
Try it yourself!
