Wonderful Wallpaper


Art and Design:Exploring Pattern

Using the Art, Design and Architecture within Newstead Abbey your class will explore the beautiful rooms in the building and create drawings of the fascinating patterns and shapes they discover. They will explore how to create and manipulate these shapes using rotation, reflection and symmetry to create a collaborative piece of collaged, patterned wallpaper.

In this session, your class can use our specially designed Arts Award Discover Workbook to complete Part A and Part C of your Discover journey. Examples of this workbook can be seen by pressing our " learning pack" link below.
