Each student uses either their first letter of their first name or first letter of their last name. They outline their bubble letter in sharpie marker and then create surrounding patterns.
They write their name so it touches each side of the paper, that way it separates the paper into sections. They use a sharpie pen to make the patterns.
Once finished with patterns, they may add color by using a marker bleeding technique. The marker bleeding technique is explained and shown in a different lesson on this Art of Ed link.
