Tessellations and the imaginative, geometric compositions of M. C. Escher are revealed to the students.  The children will create their own unique shapes and move them around the canvas to create their own tessellations which are stained with dry tempera.  Your students will discover an imaginary figure in their shapes and bring their compositions to life.
