Our next unit of study is how artists use pattern in their work. We looked at various artists who use pattern and how our eyes are drawn to pattern in our clothes and in pictures. The artist Jim Dine inspired us to create our wonderful clay hearts. We worked with various tools to make pattern impressions in the clay. We decided that Mr. Dine painted so many hearts because he wants us to remember to spread more love!
