About This Class

In this class, I'll teach you an easy and super fast way to create eye-catching geometric mandala designs in Adobe Illustrator... Because who doesn't love a beautiful mandala design?

These circular patterns are wonderful to look at, easy to create and very versatile. You can use them in all sorts of projects like:

  • Colouring sheets/books
  • Greeting cards
  • Branding & logos
  • Home decor products (e.g. cushions)
  • T-shirts
  • Accessories (e.g. tote bags)
  • And even on tattoos!

This class is totally suitable for beginners, but even if you know your Illustrator inside out, you might come out the other end with a couple or more tricks up your Illustrator sleeve ;-)

We will use a couple of Illustrator scripts, the Live Paint feature and a little-known technique to create fabulous and interesting colour palettes, among other Illustrator pro tips that you can use again and again in your design projects.

If you're not familiar with Illustrator scripts, get ready to be surprised! A script is a series of commands that tells Illustrator to perform one or more tasks, so you can automate some of your design work and save some time... :-)

We will put your brand spanking new mandala designs to good use by creating a calendar. You can create 12 mandalas and do a full year or do as many months as you want. This calendar will look lovely in your own home/office, or you can make several and use them as fabulous Christmas/birthday presents!

See you in class ;-)
