I've been working on putting together a really special series for my Skillshare classes, and I'm so excited to share it with you!
I have just hit "publish" on five ALL NEW workshops that uniquely work together - or - on their own.
Students may choose the ones that inspire them most, OR sign up for all 5 to join me in a Surface Pattern experience of a lifetime (+gain access to extra prizes!). Over the next 5 months, we'll be slowing down and taking the time to create work from the heart. We'll begin by making all new patterns from sketches, photos and paintings. Then, we'll move on to designing focal point patterns and perfecting an entire collection of 10-12 patterns (ideally building on the patterns we've been creating all along!). We'll wrap up the entire series by designing our perfect portfolio, publishing it to the web (with an option to also make a hard copy) and contacting companies with our work. This is the career booster you've been looking for!
Along the way students will receive insider info, helpful tips and tricks, personalized feedback, access to live webinars (called AMA's) and an invitation to join our private Facebook group for community support and engagement.
Whether you’re an absolute beginner or a seasoned pro, this 5 part series will be engaging as it prompts you to create new work and advance your career in pattern design. If you're new to Illustrator, you'll have plenty of time to learn it - inside and out. If you're an advanced illustrator, you'll have more time to focus on creating your work and building your portfolio.
