REPETITION: WHEN ONCE IS NOT ENOUGH4>
Part 4 of the Introduction to Design unit occurs after Line, Textureand Shape have had their day and which will now have further continuity into this aspect of Repetition where duplicate design in emphasized.
In these and other examples to follow, materials were to include transparent colored tissue paper and markers and any other 3D materials desired.
To remember the variety of SHAPE possibilities and re-think these in contrasts of large (major images) and small (pattern interests)
As the large poster (22"X28") illustrates, students were to consider organizing LINE in repetitive plans, in more than one style of presentation, in connected and unconnected forms as well as in contour definitions.
And for Texture, to see the number of ways ordinary colored tissue can be used (see below and next page) to enhance shapes and background--and of course, to think up something new!
TIPS WITH TISSUE
Because pictures are better than words, these 6"X9" VA samples were made to demonstrate some simple methods with this material.
1. TORN. Here is a common method, one with soft edges that uses fingers for scissors. Overlapping a single color into several layers within a contained area makes varied value contrasts of that hue.
2. CUT. So, O.K! Use those scissors for clean, sharp angled or smooth contours. Multiple colors over/under each other provide interesting color mixes as layers interact with each.
3. CRUSHED/ROLLED. With scissors or fingers, small strips of tissue can be loosely crushed (apple) or rolled (stem) into 3D applications. Other hues can be applied under or blended together.
