About This Class

This is the first in a developing series called: Illustrator for Pattern Design.  It is perfect for the beginner student, as well as the more intermediate.

Each pattern type, Chevron and Cloisonne, starts with a complete walk-through of the Motif creation, ending in multiple variations of pattern repeats. 

I will be covering a lot of tools and techniques in Illustrator, but here are some of the things I'll be covering specifically:

  • Creating Guides
  • Offsetting a Path
  • Shape Builder Tool
  • Live Paint Tool
  • Pattern Maker Tool
  • Recolor Artwork
  • Live Shapes
  • and SO MUCH MORE

Please feel free to post any questions you may have, as I will check the discussion area on a regular basis.

Also, I'm including a template for the Final Project, that you may or may not want to use.  I do encourage you to share your work, as seeing different students' variations of the same pattern is really exciting.

Thank you for taking my class!
