COMPOSITION.....designing your artwork On Purpose!  Let’s take those reference photos or  scenes you are apt to paint or draw, and move the elements around. We can even incorporate some other items to create great artwork!  Learn how the Elements; (line, shape, form, space, texture, value and color) can be used to strengthen the design of your art. Study the Principles (rhythm, balance, contrast, pattern, emphasis, movement and unity) and how they also strengthen your compositions. This is a two part class. Day 1 will be a Power Point presentation on COMPOSITION, followed by some hands-on exercises in identifying successful compositions.  Day 2 we will study weak compositions and ways to remedy them. We will conclude the class with hands-on exercises using shapes to build students understanding of what  strong design is.  The fee for the 2 - day class is $35.
