Patterns are so fun to study and draw, so I decided to create a collection of cool, easy patterns for beginner artists to draw.
Patterns are an essential part of art and there are so many different patterns and textures to explore when it comes to design.
Not only are they cool to the eye, but they are also very relaxing to draw.
I hope that these pattern drawing ideas can help you unwind your mind so that you can just simply focus on the act of drawing. Enjoy!

How to Make Patterns
You can find inspiration for patterns everywhere: From basic shapes to elements you find in nature.
Below are a few different ideas you can base your pattern from:
- Squares or rectangles
- Abstract shapes
Once you know what shape or line you want to create your pattern from, the rest is simply up to experimentation. Draw away!
Use your shape or line and repeat them across the page or space to create a cool, decorative design.
Ways to Change Up Your Pattern
You may have a pattern that you like to draw, but there are also so many ways you can create multiple patterns from the same basic shape or line.
Below are a few ways you can change up your pattern by drawing your basic shape or line:
- In the same direction
- In the opposite direction
- At random
- Create a pattern within a pattern
- Color or fill in shapes
- Use in combination with another shape, line, or pattern

Cool Things to Do With Patterns
Patterns are a very important part of art and design!
Adding a pattern to any work of art adds a point of interest that the eye is immediately drawn to.
Patterns are oftentimes even the very reason why we like the design of an object, piece of clothing, or artwork so much.
Below are a few cool things you can do with patterns:
- Draw doodles
- Use in your Zentangle Art (You can find out more about Zentangle at their website)
- Enhance your own artwork
- Create cool effects or even optical illusions
- Use them as backgrounds
- Fashion design
- Art therapy (Drawing patterns is fun and relaxing!)
