"Jessica Swift's pattern class was fantastic. I wasn't able to do the class with the group because of deadlines and other obligations during the weekend class - but it worked out great to do this when I could fit it in. Of course I am just finishing up the day before it closes….thanks for putting a deadline on it - you are right if it was unlimited time it would have been very easy to keep thinking 'oh I'll do it tomorrow'!
I am an illustrator/designer and have been wanting to learn how to correctly put together more complicated patterns forever / I have read online how-to guides but just was never able to stay focused and retain the process. Your online classes were perfect - broken into little chunks so could be flexible of how many to do in a day. I also really appreciate the downloadable step by step pdfs. Truly you have created a great program that really takes into consideration many different learning styles. Thanks! So excited to start creating some pattern collection out of unused illustrations and sketchbook doodles." - Heidi Schweigert

////////“When Jessica first announced her Pattern Camp class I signed up right away. Her work has always been an inspiration to me and I just knew her course would be invaluable. I’ve been walking the Surtex show for the last four years and have always had this nagging feeling that I wanted to turn my drawings into patterns. But it always seemed intimidating and using Adobe Illustrator was my biggest hurdle.
Jessica broke the software down in a way that is manageable for beginners and challenging enough for someone who wants to take their patterns to the next level. Not only did she provide enough techniques, tips and tricks for a semester long course at an expensive art school (it was a marathon two days) but she was there every step of the way to help each camper trouble shoot. Everyone worked at their own pace and posted questions throughout the weekend. The lessons and videos are still available for those of us still working through each technique. The class was filled with a wonderful group of creative, supportive students and we cheered each other on throughout the weekend. Jessica is a truly generous caring instructor who’s passion for color and pattern is truly remarkable.
This class will definitely to help me take my illustrations in a whole new direction. Thank you Jessica for everything! You’ve changed my path as a creator in a profound way!” - Aimee Sicuro
