Making Spirograph designs is a bit like riding a bike. Once you get it, you won’t likely forget it – at least that was my experience, because I learned it as a child, and had no trouble coming back to it as an adult.
But how to explain it to other people? There are lots of little things that I just do without consciously thinking about it, and that I wouldn’t think to explain.
Which is why I like Sonya Pickens’ Spirograph Tutorial video. Sonya had to figure it out as an adult, and she explains some of the really basic things that I wouldn’t think to explain. If you’re struggling to get the hang of Spirograph, this video may really help you.
Plus she’s an artist working in a lot of different media, and you might get inspired by her work to do some different things with your Spirograph designs. She does a lot of other circle-based art too. Here’s a link to her Facebook Page.
