Learn to create tessellation patterns with easy step-by-step lessons and plenty of examples. You will be drawing true nested shape tessellations in no time at all. No cardboard, no scissors, we will dive into all the symmetry groups over the next while. Using your iPad tablet, I will show you all the tricks I have learned in the last decade of drawing nested shape tessellations using KaleidoPaint. You will become a tessellation artist!
This time, we will zero-in on symmetry group P31m, the Mirrored Triplets, is how I like to call these character arrangements. Humans, animals, birds and fish, or geometric designs, the topics are endless. If you know the artist M.C. Escher, you`ve seen his wonderful tessellations.
All you need for this class is a good dose of imagination, an iPad, and a stylus. No need for advanced drawing skills. No math skills. No geometry jargon.
And the KaleidoPaint iPad app is free!

Get ready to dive into another method to create nested shape tessellations. This class will show you how to use a pre-set grid of triangles in the KaleidoPaint app (free!) to draw an enclosed tile that repeats perfectly in a three-way rotation system with one single line. No math, no jargon, no programming. All you need is a good dose of imagination and the the desire to tweak it to perfection. Ride along with my instructions, easy.
There are 17 methods to divide a surface into identical tiles, using different operations: repetition, rotation, reflection and glide reflection. And a billion possibilities for your patterns.
I hope you’ll join me on this wonderful journey into the world of tessellations, one symmetry method at a time.
Cheers! (an anagram of Escher)
