About This Class

c465471e

Would you like to create fun patterns easily for sketching, doodling, and lettering?

I know what it feels like to be a beginner and wonder, "What patterns do I start with?”

Some artists make it look so easy and effortless.

I think the difference is they already have an internal memory of patterns they can use at any time. This is often called a "visual vocabulary."

In this class, I'm going to walk you through 88 different patterns to give you a foundation to start from when creating patterns in your artwork.

Once you have an understanding of these basic patterns that come from lines, shapes, and botanicals; you can create many things using what I teach you in this class.

Whether or not you're using the patterns for your doodles, your planner, your sketchbook, or commissioned work; these patterns will be a great tool you can add into your artistic toolbox.

It's super easy and anyone can take this class.

All you need is paper and a pen or pencil. You can use whatever supplies you have around home to have some fun creating patterns and learning new ways to take your doodles, sketches, and lettering to a new level.

If you want to add more patterns into your artwork, let's get started.

This class not only gives you 88 patterns to use and inspire you, but more importantly - at least for myself - it helped me 'understand' patterns. Break it down to it's individual parts and therefore be able to create them myself.
Great ideas! Your encouragement has made a positive impact on me!

But, I have learned to embrace the artist in me and have re-discovered the joy of creating art.

Art can help you:

Relax and have fun. It's been an amazing form of self-care for me. Discover the power of color. Creating art can bring you so much joy. Create beautiful pieces you can...
