This lesson focuses on pattern, unity and creating movement in visual art. Students will learn about Edgar Degas, a French impressionist visual artist who is especially identified with the subject of dance and was a master in depicting movement. Students will invoke movement by creating dancers ala Degas and place them on scratchboard backgrounds that have been designed using concepts of pattern and unity.
