Description

What you’ll learn

  • Construct four different islamic geometric patterns
  • Outline the pattern having constructed an underlying grid
  • Tile eightfold and sixfold patterns.
  • Create an interlaced effect.
  • Add colour using multiple layered watercolour pencils and aquabrush

In this course I demonstrate how to construct four Islamic Geometric Patterns step by step using the traditional method of a compass and straight edge.I will also provide you with a step by step handout pdf file for each pattern to supplement the video demonstrations.

In each unit you will learn to construct an underlying grid and outline an Islamic geometric pattern. This course consists of four units:

– A Sixfold Pattern: The Star and Hexagon

– An Eightfold Pattern: The Khatam

– A Sixfold Pattern: The Ferozkoh Jaali

– An Eighfold Pattern: The Geometric Rosette

You will also learn additional techniques:

– Tiling the pattern, for both fourfold and and sixfold patterns;

– Creating a ribbon effect to interlace the pattern;

– Transferring the pattern using tracing paper and a spoon;

– Adding colour using watercolour pencils and an aquabrush.

Depending on your pace, each pattern may take 10 to 20 minutes to construct. The interlacing and tiling will take longer. As you work through the course, you will develop your compass and ruler and construction skills. Each pattern is a level up from the previous.

You will need a compass, ruler, pencil, plain paper, tracing paper,
eraser and masking tape.  I also use watercolour pencils and an aquabrush. However, you will gain enough skills to be able to transfer a pattern to the surface of your choice – how you add the colour is up to you, colouring pens or pencils, paints and beyond!

This course is aimed at beginners with an interest in the geometric patterns they have seen in and around the Islamic world and beyond. Many people haven’t used a compass since their school days, if that’s you, you can rediscover all the potential it holds.

All the videos on this course feature a remixed version of the song “Montmartre” by Jahzzar, from the Free Music Archive used under CC BY-SA 3.0

Who this course is for:

  • Suitable for beginners particularly those who have an interest in pattern, symmetry and geometry.
  • If you have previous experience of constructing patterns, do have a look at the four patterns on this course as they may be familar to you already and therefore this course isnt for you.

    I can definitely see this course helping breaking through that initial barrier when it comes to learning a programming language. I’m positive I’ll finish it and hopefully master python by then.

  2. Abdallah Galal Abouhussein

    I would like to share my personnel experience, i`m very pleased and happy for taking this impressive course because Dr. Angela always makes it simple and easy to understand and always makes a precaution section before or after any bug that may appear to some students and also write or record the solution for us, and each word she said is very real and easy to understand.
    Thanks Dr. Angela

    Very good course. Dr Angela explains things very clearly. The exercises are interactive and helpful.

    Angela’s voice is like ASMR in most lessons. So you won’t lose focus?

  4. Jaime Sánchez Blanco

    Every concept is very well explained so you can assimilate it, and the teacher insists in practicing daily to get the habit of programming. It really motivates to keep studying and practicing every day.

  5. Bradley Carouthers

    3 days in and I’ve already learned more than other training programs where I’ve put months in. Her teaching style is both efficient and effective.

    Edit: Now on day 29 and the course has held up my expectations and hopes. The rise in complexity is not too sharp, and every day feels like an accomplishment. Angela takes her time to explain things without rushing, yet is able to pack tons of information in nuggets of time.

    Still recommend supplemental exposure for a more wholesome grasp. Though, this should be quite enough

  6. Tommy Prévost

    Very good course.

    PROs: lots of coding exercises, clear explanations, great examples, adapted to 2021’s reality.

    CONs: past the first 30 lessons, many similar coding hands-on.

  7. Quang Tu

    I love all the lectures and challenges of this course. I finally find myself in love with coding. This is definitely a fun course. Thank you Angela for this great course.

    This course is nothing short of AMAZING. The level of love and sincere desire to see students succeed present in this course is a rare sight. This course is fun, it’s challenging, it’s suspense-filled, it makes you feel good about yourself solving those challenges. You don’t take this course and memorise codes, you take it and you know what you’re doing because you literally do it yourself.

    It couldn’t possibly be any more obvious that Angela brought out her whole heart, time, energy and resources to give us a course that if priced based on it’s value, many of us certainly can’t afford. I mean, she kept advising and encouraging us to keep going, because she knows the road could get bumpy, she made a few jokes and used funny animations so we smile along the way keeping it fun. Why some people can’t see this and would rather subscribe to trying to bend courses to fit their own personal preferences is beyond me, but I guess people will always be people.

    Dear Angela, I cannot speak for everyone but I certainly can speak for myself and I’m saying thank you. The efforts you put into making this course outstanding didn’t go unnoticed.

    Let as many of us as appreciate your efforts make you happy and energize you to create more life changing courses for us.

    Cheers.

    Just the course fits me. Learn by doing, it is easy to start and just follow the flow and at day 15 you realized how to program in Python. Then the magic happen. I am on day 27 and I am looking forward to start a new section everyday.

    Angela is my favourite teacher on Udemy, her courses always come with clear and concise demonstration, make it really easy to understand the content. Meanwhile, she also provide a lot of tips to encourage us moving further on the way of coding. I’m definitely a super fan of her. I had finished her web development boot camp and now I’m learning Python 100 days of code. This course is amazing as she provided one particular project for each day’s learning, which is, really useful and handy. Also, those projects are really interesting and won’t let me feel disappointed about myself. Although some of them are a little bit difficult, they’re still resolvable after some struggling and searching online. I’ll recommend this course for those who really want to learn Python well and write real python projects from scratch!

  11. Jonas Weber

    The course was awesome in the first half! Really helped me to get back to programming and learning new techniques. Also the course got way to much focused on web development in the second half, which I’m not really interested in and is redundand to your dedicated web development course. The lack of videos in the last quarter was rather sad. I really would’ve liked some video explanations for pandas and matplotlib. The challenges and capstone projects were great and challenging!
    All in all I can really recommend this course for beginners and those who want to learn python and/or get back to programming!

  12. Rohit Prasad

    Angela is the best teacher I have ever experienced. The way she explains all the topics and makes use of it in the projects is commendable. Thank you so much Angela for this course.
