* Dutch Artist* Born: June 17, 1898 – Died: March 27, 1972* He created over 2,000 drawings and sketches in his lifetime* He created artwork and also illustrated books* Escher was well known for his tessellations* A tessellation is “created when a shape is repeated over and over again, covering a plane w/o any gaps” – tessellations are also found in math

Artist Inspiration: M.C. Escher

Enrichment Opportunity: Tessellation1. Use an 8.5"x11" sheet of paper to put your tessellation design on; this needs to be created by hand and NOT on the computer2. On a separate sheet of paper (preferably a heavier type of paper) cut out a square that is approx. 2.5"x2.5"3. On your square, draw a design on ONE side (see steps below)4. Once you have a design drawn, cut out the design from one side of the square5. Using the piece that you just cut out, slide the design over to the opposite side of the square and tape it down (be sure NOT to flip the shape as you transfer it to the other side)6. Now, on your 8.5"11" paper, begin to trace your tessellation shape7. Trace your tessellation shape so it fills the entire sheet of 8.5"x11" paper; your piece should fit together like a puzzle8. Once your 8.5"x11" paper is filled with your tessellation design, please color in your entire creation9. Once completed, please submit your tessellation creation to me, via web mail, by Friday 15/11/18** I've provided the visual steps and a worksheet on creating tessellations; they're in the message board for you to use **
