Simple Quick Patterns and Tessellations

This new class shows you easy ways to create quick patterns as well as new ways to vary your pattern layouts. TWENTY patterns in THIRTY minutes. We will use the four previous class symmetries to create these patterns showcasing the simplicity of the line.

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. No programming. Not even scissors and carboard.

And the KaleidoPaint iPad app is free!

Learn to create super-simple tessellations and simple patterns with easy step-by-step lessons.

Head over to and start learning, the classes are listed below my profile.

The above video is part of my latest series of videos, “Super Simple Quickie Patterns” on the Skillshare learning platform for creatives. This series, posted this week, deals with the KaleidoPaint iPad app (free) and how to use it to create varied layouts and patterns as well as tessellations. I’ve been using this app for 10 years. It’s opened up a whole new process to creating patterns and tessellation. A whole new way of looking at symmetry. And many more ways to lay out patterns, more than the standard repetition, half-drop and tossed methods!
