Pattern Play + Exploration

Expand your ability to recognize, utilize, and play with pattern in this dynamic, two-hour workshop! We are surrounded by infinitely diverse visual patterns, but which patterns boost and inspire your creativity? Through guided group discussions, a field trip, a zine made specifically for this class, and delicious snacks (!), this workshop provides space for you to familiarize yourself with patterns found in nature—such as those in a leaf, an ocean, a galaxy—and incorporate them into your creative practices. You will leave with a new set of favorite pattern ideas and a new sharp eye for recognizing more.

This workshop is encouraged for anyone who is visually inspired, whether you're a photographer, mark maker, performance artist, or just love to doodle. Facilitated by educator, illustrator, and farmer Katelyn Hale, this Sunday afternoon is bound to change the way you interact with our world!

Sliding scale $10 to $30 due to instructor at the class. 


Katelyn Hale is a community educator, illustrator, and farmer living and working in Portland, Oregon.
