Symmetry group thumbnails and listing systems

Finally got around to creating a “Cheat Sheet” for starting a tessellation. A page of my own. Sometimes I need to physically mime my ideas, so hands are a good base to use here. Often it is difficult to decide which group to choose to accomplish a certain design. You may have an idea of how your topic will nest beside itself, so below are the symmetry groups with possible ways to start creating your design. Do let me know if this helps! This post further extends from a previous post “Which symmetry system to use?

If you’re a “Learn by Seeing” “Learn by Doing” kind of person, I’ve started creating videos on “how-to” create tessellations. I’ll be covering each of the 17 symmetry groups, one class at a time. And like all artists, we need to make a living. So. I’ve uploaded these to the Skillshare platform. I’ll get paid by minutes watched.

You can take the classes for free. Skillshare offers anywhere from 2 weeks to a month for free if you sign up, even temporarily.

You can register for just a month and cancel anytime. It’s less than the cost of a Netflix subscription!
There are over 40,000 classes on topics for creative persons just like you. Join my mailing list, either here on my blog (in the sidebar), or a at this link for a specific list I use to announce new classes.

I’d love for you to join me on this wonderful learning adventure.

If you prefer, you can follow my progress on social media, I always announce my new class:
