Course Description

The success of your own original art depends heavily on your compositional skills. In this course, we'll begin by learning the specific principles of composition. More importantly, though, this course will give you a bundle of hands-on experiences using different materials and creative tricks, so you can produce and recognize excellence in design. I plan to give you feedback on your projects as we work together. You will not complete a painting, but you will be bubbling with ideas that will guide all your future creations. Who knew that learning composition skills could be this much fun? Participants in Art Composition do not need any prior experience or training whatsoever. | Active participation; Lecture + Q&A; Facilitated discussion; Viewing videos.
