mask1mask2mask3Exercise goals: repetition as a means of creating unity, variation as a means to elevate interest, and the combined results expressing a rhythm.

Create a mask, flat or dimensional, any medium, based on two or three simple shapes that are repeated and varied. The variation between shapes could be expressed through the use of size; proportion; similarity (as in, something being nearly the same but still showing a difference); pattern; texture; color or by any combination.

When you’re done, share: Facebook, Pinterest, or Instagram.
