Project Description

Your mission, should you choose to accept is to create a decorative brick pattern incorporating some leaves and a bird (or any animal of your choice). Some photos (right) are provided to get you started.

To follow this class, download the grids from the right side of this page and print them out. The PDF files are an integral part of this class and are designed to help you turn your decorative ideas into reality.

For Affinity Designer users, you can download the Affinity Designer files. For users of other vector drawing tools, download the PDF files and open them into your vector drawing app of choice.

Remember to share your hand drawn ideas and finished artwork in the project gallery.

Welcome to the class. I hope you enjoy it.
