Designing Patterns: An Arts & Crafts Approach


NEW! The Arts & Crafts movement is considered one of the most important design movements of the modern era and continues to influence artists and designers even today. In this class you will learn to design imaginative and beautifully composed patterns inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement. You will explore how to combine different sources of inspiration, to sketch out ideas for motifs, and a variety of strategies for designing with repetition. The class will culminate with a finished pattern you design and execute. By the end of the course you will have gained a greater appreciation of Arts & Crafts movement, an understanding of the principles of design, and the ability to create your own unique and exciting patterns.
