Making Art Online

Sometimes it can be nice to distract yourself with something fun you can create!

Weavesilk is a site that allows you to make symmetrical art easily with only a mouse

  • once at the site, click ‘Draw something’
  • in the upper left hand corner, there is a blue dot. However over it – it should say ‘controls’
  • click on that – it will show 7 colors, and you can change the color you are working with by clicking on the color you want
  • you can also mix colors, by holding onto color with your mouse and dragging it to another dot of color
  • you can also play with the bar labeled ‘rotational symmetry’, and turn the ‘mirror across center’ and ‘spiral towards center’ on or off
  • draw by clicking in the center and moving your mouse
  • hit space to clear the page, and z to undo

Do you have any other sites you like to use when you need a distraction? List them below!
