Project Description

For the class project you'll be making your own repeating pattern. You can be as simple or complex as you'd like with the animation, and make as many as you'd like! Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Create an animation tile
  2. Repeat the tile into a pattern,
  3. Post your final pattern to the project page
