About This Class

4b317368

In this class we'll look at a checklist of 6 things to consider when making a pattern. Think of it as an art theory class for surface pattern design.

Through demos and examples, we will be discussing

  • contrast
  • colour
  • depth
  • texture
  • layout and direction
  • flow

We will talk about how to implement these into your patterns to take them to the next level.

This class is for those of you who already know how to make a repeat pattern but want to up your pattern game. Sometimes a pattern isn't quite there yet and you're not sure why...this class will help you figure out what's wrong and how to fix it.

I'd love to connect with you here on Skillshare or Instagram and keep in touch :)
