Course Description

Vibrant patterns are everywhere—you can find them adorning the wall of lush interiors or upon the surfaces of everyday products. Artists often look to patterns found in nature to inspire their designs. How can you bring a surface to life using inspiration from the outdoors? Respond to your surroundings and get inspired by natural specimens. Explore principles such as similarity and repetition to create your own rhythmic images.


Students must be 13-17 years of age.
