What you'll need:

  • Paper

  • Pencil

  • String

  • Tack

  • Colored pencils or markers

To start, draw a big circle. One way to do this is tie a piece of string around a pencil, tack the other of the end down where you want the center of the circle. Then pull the pencil until the string is taut, and draw your circle.

Make a smaller circle inside by shortening the string. Then use a ruler to divide into sections.

In the smallest circle, draw the same shape in each slice.

You can use the lines to structure your designs. Keep adding repeating patterns as you move out from the center.
