I have been wanting to create an Art + Design Class Series for adults + school aged children with ADHD + ASD for a very long time. But as someone with ADHD, it took me a very long time to organise my thoughts and design the class in a format that teaches people with ADHD + high functioning ASD.
Through detailed examination of the teaching methods that help me to learn, and my years teaching art to people with ADHD + ASD, I developed an online class structure that is designed for the ADHD + ASD creative mind.
The classes in this series offer high quality, brief lessons that help one to focus, learn, and enjoy the process or learning by doing.
In this Mandala Design class, I go straight into teaching how-to create a mandala like the one in the image below, without a long, boring tutorial of how-to learn every minute detail of Adobe Illustrator. Instead, students learn Adobe Illustrator by doing the class project.
The lessons are brief allowing students absorb the content without being overwhelmed.
People with ADHD + ASD often face discrimination in the workplace. I design these classes in a way for students to learn a marketable skill that can help them gain employment or start a creative business as an artist or graphic designer.
The content in this class is:
Overview + Class Project
Adobe Illustrator Set Up
Creating a Grid with Circles + Lines
Math about the Grid
Yellow Artwork (Or Orange, hmmmm, you'll have to watch the lesson)
Tidy Up + Black Background

I thoroughly enjoyed this class. The teacher did an excellent job organizing and preparing for it, so I found my time was well spent. Learned a lot and would definitely take more classes from this teacher. Total #CreativeGoodness
This is one of the most useful Illustrator graphics technique courses I've taken on Skillshare. The step-by-step videos are very much appreciated. Each part of the process for creating the design in the course using Illustrator is carefully shown through screen share and clearly explained by the instructor; a good way to learn some new skills and create something beautiful. And once you've done one of these, there's no limit to the number of mandalas that can be created through these techniques using different graphic elements. Well done...
