Art Feb 27 to March



Follow precise, multi-step directions.

Have the opportunity to go beyond the immediate lesson and apply artistic creativity, or learn more about M. C. Escher, his art, or the contributions he made to mathematics.

Be able to understand and define the following terms: tessellation, polygon, angle, plane, vertex, and adjacent.

Create a concrete model of a tessellation.

Art Feb 21-24


tessellation of a flat surface is the tiling of plane using one or more geometric or non geometric shapes, called tiles, with no overlaps and no gaps. In math, tessellations can be generalized to higher dimensions and a variety of geometries.

Escher is regarded as the ‘Father’ of modern tessellations so. He is famous for his impossible depictions and he was a master of lino and wood cuts and produced many superbly crafted landscapes as well.

During his life, he became obsessed with filling surfaces with pictures that did not overlap or leave spaces. Aged 68, he stated, “Filling two-dimensional planes has become a real mania to which I have become addicted and from which I sometimes find it hard to tear myself away.”

Watercolor Animal Portrait


  • Understanding  color values grids and enlargement
  • Depict watercolor techniques

Students  will create a watercolor painting using the following these steps:

Print out a photograph at a reasonable size. It doesn’t have to be gigantic but you need to be able to see the details so you can copy them

Figure out an appropriate size of the grid spacing. For most images, 3 or 4 centimeters between each line but sometimes 2 cm works best.

Students will draw the grid out on your printed photo. Use pen here so that it’s easier to see on top of the photograph.

Label the boxes on the sides of the grid. A, B, C, etc. on the left and right sides and 1, 2, 3 on the top and bottom. Labeling the boxes makes it much easier when you get into the middle of the grid and you start getting lost.
