I just love this project . . . students were asked to find a pattern nature. They chose anything from animal fur to microorganisms. They replicted the pattern using acrylic paint on 12×18″ paper. Once their painting was complete, they camoflaged their hand within the painting. I photograped each composition and now students are manipulating the images in PhotoShop. They are INCREDIBLE! And best of all, the students are so impressed with themselves 🙂 .
