"HyperCard is the tool I use to introduce my students to the Macintosh. One of the lessons I have developed involves teaching them how to tessellate using HyperCard's paint tools. If you have HyperCard on a Macintosh computer but you have no HyperCard experience, you may want to refer to HyperCard Tessellation Tips. Although I use HyperCard, it is possible to adapt the procedure outlined here to any application that has paint tools. For those of you with access to HyperStudio, with a few adaptations it is quite easy to tessellate in color! If you prefer to start in color, you may go directly to HyperStudio & Tessellations in Color."
Japanese Artist, Yoshiaki Araki This site shows what a real artist does that takes the Escher and tesslations idea seriously. Along with many very interesting and beautiful examples of tesselation art, this Japanese artist gives you other links to travel. He actually wrote to our kids to tell them how much he enjoyed their art work.
