Creating patterns inspired by MC Escher

This is an art scheme of work focusing on pattern design. Using MC Escher as a reference and research point, the lessons look first at optical illusions, then at different aspects of pattern design, pattern repeats and colour theory. The lessons are designed for students of all abilities, and draw on any previous work (students select sections of their work, or photographs etc. to work from).

I have used this scheme of work with KS3, however it could easily be differentiated to KS2 or 4.

It includes full lessons, with Starter / Plenary / Homework activities.
