Course Description

In this online course, we will investigate the shapes, patterns and forms that occur in Nature and that exist and repeat in the large scale and immense (macro) to the small and diminutive (micro).

Through online video demonstrations, studio work, such as painting, drawing, photography, digital media AND fieldwork such as, study, collection and identification (wherever you are!), we will explore connections and systems that may repeat throughout. In addition, we will look to the artwork, research and history of other artists, designers and scientists in this field. We will take a close look at how forms, patterns and shapes (spirals, waves, branches, fractals) repeat and connect in nature and why.
