Project Description

CLASS PROJECT

Assignment

Your project for this course is to create your own Indian floral pattern design, using everything you've learned in class.

Deliverables

Create a project in the project section of this class and a completed project should include the following:

- A short introduction of who you are. It's more fun if we know each other a bit :-)

- A title for your pattern/project- Photos, images or scans of your drawn motifs. Originals or the vectorized versions, it's up to you.

- An image of your finished pattern

 

Fun to include, but optional:

- Short description of your idea and the theme you've chosen for your Indian floral.

- An image of your inspiration board

Share your work on Instagram too - with the hashtag #IndianFloralWithBarbel

Can't wait to see what you make!
