PATTERNS FOR TEACHERS
THE ONLY TIME YOU SHOULD EVER LOOK BACK IS TO SEE HOW FAR YOU’VE COME.
Are you a dot art teacher? Do you struggle to find the time to come up with the ideas for your next class? Let me help you.
I regularly work with other dot art teachers to create CUSTOMISED PATTERNS? I have worked with teachers from Australia, New Zealand, and the US to create customized patterns for their classes. These patterns are made to your specifications and contain all elements that you want to teach in your chosen colour palettes. I will work closely with you and these become your property once the design is approved and the final PDF sent to you. (Images always remain the property of Z-Dot designs, but are filed and not used).
If this is something you would like to explore further, please contact me and let’s start working together.
