About This Class

143ac687

In this class you will learn how to draw symmetrical patterns with a live preview in Adobe Illustrator!   This super fun and easy way to make patterns is outright addicting and you will find yourself coming back to it again and again.

We will go over how to make patterns in any of 17 of the wallpaper groups (that is mathematical lingo for ways to fill a surface will symmetry), plus many variations of those 17!  You will be given my Illustrator templates for free to use in this class and your project will be to make a pattern. But seriously… who can make just one, when they are this fun and easy.  So… your project is to make patternssss. And more patterns. Go crazy.

Anybody should be able to take this class even with no prior experience in illustrator or with patterns.  But those who know a lot about making patterns or using Illustrator will learn a lot and have a blast too.
