Can You Repeat That? From Painting to Pattern


with Donna Rockwell       ADULTS
6 classes, Tuesdays, Jan 9-Feb 13

Have you ever thought about turning your drawings, paintings, or doodles into patterns? Have you ever wanted to design your own fabric/wallpaper/gift wrap? Then this class is for you. This introductory class will cover the basics of turning your own unique artwork into seamless, repeat patterns suitable for use on fabric, stationery designs, wallpaper -- even shower curtains! The possibilities are endless. 

Working with artist Donna Rockwell (do well design), you will be guided through several methods of creating a repeat pattern by hand. And, although this isn’t a computer class, we will also look at several methods for digitally creating repeat patterns. We will explore the services available for producing a custom fabric and you will walk away with a repeat pattern suitable for whatever application you desire -- or simply beautiful enough to frame and hang on the wall. 

Please bring:

  • ruler
  • scissors
  • drawing/painting materials of your choice
  • drawing pad, 9x12 or bigger

Tuesdays, January 9 - February 13
