Terms you’d like to get to know better?

Then this is the right class for you. We’ll explore each of these concepts and a good deal more, through exercises done with cut paper, markers, and other simple design tools. Our goal is a clearer understanding of composition basics, with an emphasis on the articulation of personal visual language. Students will also have the option to share work in Open Studio, with other participants.

Limited enrollment due to the nature of personalized feedback.

  • Lesson One: Organizing the Two Dimensional Picture World
  • Lesson Two: Contrast and Relationship: The seven elements
  • Lesson Three: What’s a focal point and how does it work?
  • Lesson Four: Creating the Illusion of Space and Dimension
