Objective: Children will use their sense of sight to explore patterns and create patterned artwork.‹ Return to Theme
Sight is one of our five senses—the five senses include sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. Our senses work together to give us information about the world around us. Eyes allow us to see things like images, colors, and patterns. The repeating patterns and bold, bright colors in the focus work of art, Beaded Crown (Adé), are a feast for the eyes. We can see colors and patterns all around us—on buildings, on clothing, and in nature.
A crown is a symbol of royalty. Typically, a crown represents power, honor, and glory. Crowns are often decorated with precious stones, which are sometimes arranged in patterns. Kings and queens in different parts of the world have worn different types of crowns throughout history. The artwork featured in this lesson, Beaded Crown (Adé), was worn long ago by a king who lived in Africa.
