About This Class

f971bb6f

This is the second class in my Hand Drawn Mandala series.  In this class I will take you further into the process and introduce you to using circular grids.  We will learn how to make three different grids and then use these grids to create frameworks, add detail and ink our mandalas.  Similar design elements will be used throughout all three mandalas so the student can see how changing up the grid and framework can give you a completely different look.

What you require:

  • pencil
  • paper
  • pen
  • compass
  • protractor
  • eraser
  • ruler
  • no drawing experience necessary - just the desire to explore and learn

What you will learn

  • How to draw three different versions of a circular grid and the skills to invent your own
  • How to create a framework using a preset grid
  • How using the same design elements and simple shapes can give different looks depending on what grid you start with.

What you will walk away with

  • The skills to make your own grids
  • three grids available for you to download, print out and use over and over again
  • The encouragement to tackle your own creative designs
  • a community of fellow mandala lovers like you learning to create beautiful designs, share their stories and encourage each other on.

Looking forward to seeing you in class!

Illustration & Design, Making Creativity Simple

Illustrator and Pattern Designer - The most beautiful designs start with the simplest ideas.

Through my years of working as a professional pattern designer, textile artist and illustrator, I have experienced the greatest joy from sharing my passion for creativity and encouraging others to explore creativity through simple drawing and design, both by hand and digitally.

I believe the first step to accomplishing your goals and dreams is to just start.  Jump in and learn as you go.  Allow yourself to make mistakes for those are the best lessons.  Don't judge your work, just do and then do it again and do it some more.  Watch it evolve and look back with awe in how far you have come because you chose to just start!  

My goal in my classes is to break the process down into simple techniques that everyone can try and then encourage and inspire students to keep experimenting and building on the ideas they have learned in my classes.

Remember the most beautiful and detailed designs start with the simplest ideas.
