Class of Cards (“Hellooo, how do you do…?”) This project will help you explore pattern, repetition, and color; it will familiarize you with the work of Charles and Ray Eames; and it will give me an opportunity to learn a few things about you. Follow the directions below in order to create your Card for the “House of Cards.” Side One: Design a repeating pattern that fills your card to the edge. Come up with three different sketches for your design before you begin drawing in whisper lines on your card. Look at the pattern sampler to get ideas for using simple shapes in combination to come up with your design. The finished design needs to meet the following criteria: o design is evenly spaced and well planned o all pencil is erased – only black pen and colored pencil/marker are visible o at least three colors other than black are used o design is relatively complex and made from a combination of shapes Side Two: Look at the sample card to get a visual for what this side will look like. Practice designing and sketching the four symbols or logos before you trace them onto your card. Then follow the procedure below: 1. Lightly trace a line dividing your card in half in both directions. 2. Using the point where your two lines cross as the middle, trace a circle from the template. 3. In the quadrants, lightly draw a symbol for the following – the year you were born, your favorite animal, your most hated food, and your favorite pastime. These symbols or logos should represent YOU. Design them as a tool for other students to learn about you. 4. In one corner, write your name/initials. 5. Carefully retrace everything but the cross mark in pen. Do not color this side! 6. Erase the pencil lines. If you feel lost, look at the sample card! Once you’ve gotten this far, be prepared to present your card to the class.
