What is Pattern?

What is Pattern?
Pattern has three main meanings: a decorative design, usually of a repeated motif or figure; the composition or layout of an artwork; and the model or mould used for casting. In the first sense, visual forms or motifs, are repeated, often in a systematic manner.

Repeated systematic patterns

1. Create a paper-chain - you can either cut out some girls, boys or angles. Create a pattern and stick this in your sketchbook. You can extend your page with an extra bit of paper to make a flap.

2. Create a simple repeated pattern. Make sure you use colour!!!
Below are some examples of repeated pattern - use these for inspiration.

Happy pattern making :)
