This is a worksheet to accompany an art lesson on patterns. The artist, Laurel Burch, used patterns in a colorful, exciting way in her art. The definition of pattern is included. The students will identify the patterns in Lauren's art and draw them in the small boxes. Then, there are boxes for them to make their own drawings of patterns in the large blank spaces. This lesson and worksheet can be used as a preliminary sketch for a larger work of art.
