Hi everyone and welcome to this months creative challenge! This month, is all about Patterned tiles
So many beautiful colors and patterns in the tiles in Spain. On stairs, walls and floors.
Before you start creating, take some time to think about patterns that you have seen on tiles before. What colors come to mind, what patterns have you seen. What are the initial thoughts that come to mind when you think of this?
I believe that when we create in the form of play, beautiful things will happen. We let go of the expectations of what the final result will look like and loose ourselves in a blissful creative zone. This is my wish for us this month. To lose ourselves in the joy of creating, just because it is fun! Because we are ‘just playing’ anything goes!
THE CHALLENGE: Create a pattern or piece of artwork inspired by Spanish tiles
Here are some ideas to get you started:
• Gather photos of decorative tiles and share with the group or create your own pinterest board/mood board.
• When you think of patterned tiles, what are the words, feelings and colours that speak to you? Cut these out of magazines or write them out and glue onto your image or just collage them onto a blank piece of paper. Perhaps pick out certain things that you associate with this.
• With your pencils or paints, create pattern or painting inspired by the shapes, colors and patterns
• Try out different shapes together to create your own unique pattern. Let your imagination spark your creativity
