Investigate how nature and organic patterns have influenced illustrators and designers throughout history, particularly focusing on art nouveau. From printed material each student will choose a subject which appeals to them and will practice drawing either the whole of it or a small section, noting symmetry, form, elegance, repetition, interweaving.
The course will culminate in using your sketches to create your very own artwork. Students can choose whether their artwork is a design for jewellery, an illustration border or textile pattern. The artist tutor will show students how to take a small detail and repeat it to make a pattern, as well as techniques of laying out a circle or border with lines that can then be rubbed out afterwards.
