About This Class


In this class I will walk you step by step on how to create beautiful seamless patterns with just the click of the mouse. Adobe illustrator has developed an amazing tool that has simplified the pattern making process allowing for more time for designing and less time for pattern building. Best of all, you can edit, recolor and rearrange your pattern endless times in just a few simple steps. 

This class does require Adobe Ilustrator  version CS6 or CC. If you do not have these new versions, see the link below for my "Simplified Pattern Design" class, where I teach you how to create patterns traditionally.  You can also choose to download a free 30 day trial of Adobe CC here: ADOBE FREE TRIAL

In this class I will walk you from design concept to finished pattern! 

Once you have completed the class, you can embark on your own creative adventure by completing your class project. 

See you in class!
