Islamic Tile Designs

Students in grades 7 and 8 created these symmetrical Islamic tile designs. We began the lesson with a talk about Islamic art- mainly how it is primarily decorative and rarely represents people. Students created a square design that incorporates geometric and organic designs. This design was then repeated throughout the page the same way a tile would be repeated on a wall. Students colored them with marker and outlined the design with sharpies.
