This is a step by step course that will teach students drawing geometrical patterns that are inspired from nature and found in architecture. Participants will produce different shapes and geometrical patterns and will paint them using different techniques. Participating in this course will teach students how to use geometry as a tool of design that can be applied to their own art.
