Enjoy the element of discovery and the act of artistic creation with Tilemaker, an interactive tool offering an introduction to the art of geometry. Experimenting with shapes, patterns, and colors, you will learn about the characteristics and key mathematical principles applied in geometric design.


For centuries, Islamic designers and craftsmen have made geometric patterns just by drawing straight lines and circles with a compass and straight edge. With a click or two, Tilemaker lets you build layers of lines and circles, mimicking their actions. As you experiment drawing different intersections of line segments and circles you will discover new patterns, just as they did!
