AP ART: Repetition and Rhythm in Art

The focus for the next AP Art breadth piece will be using repetition and rhythm in Art.  When we talk about repetition and rhythm the names Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol often arise and for good reason because Pollock's drip paintings are somewhat related to Jazz music and include beautiful rhythms and Warhol is the master of repeating an image for effect but there are many other more subtle ways to include these elements in your work as well. The time-lapse video above is from the Soul Pancake website and shows artist Jeni Yang creating a piece in the theme of 'protection' which incorporates these elements in an interesting and unique way.  What's your unique way of working with repetition and rhythm?  Let's find out and share the results when the pieces are due on Monday!

If you want to check out more from Soul Pancake look at some of their creative activities
