A swatch of wallpaper is used to pilot a new idea that camouflages the swatch. The swatch of wallpaper is still there although it is now blended in by using line and color.
Students select a swatch of wall paper and then glue to toned construction paper. Using a felt tip pen, they extend lines and shapes from the swatch creating a new image. Then paint is matched with the swatch to paint by locating the colors and shades found in the swatch.
