Some tessellations are super simple. Especially if you use the free KaleidoPaint App from professor Jeff Weeks. This one took 60 seconds!
The app I’m using here, is from the Apple App store and works only on the iPad or iPhone. No web browser is required. It is not the same thing as the crude mandala application found under kaleidopaint dot com.
And this KaleidoPaint iPad app is free!
If you want to read about the developer, professor Jeff Weeks, and his many other math/art based apps, head over to his website, geometrygames.org
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! And you can still stay put on the couch. 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:
