Pattern Paiselys

A popular design found in the large country of India is paisleys. They are found on almost everything from fabrics to vehicles. We created these using analogous and monochromatic colors. First, students designed the patterns with pencils then added oil pastels, and paint. Students really enjoyed creating these wild and elaborate designs.
