Introduction to the Fundamentals of Pictorial Composition
Virtual Class

Thursdays, 6:00 – 8:00 pm. January 21 – March 4.

Once of the most often asked questions in the two-dimensional arts is “how do I determine the organization of the pictorial surface; how do I arrange all of the different features of a composition in such a way as to make it visually pleasing.” This workshop is designed for anyone who would like to more fully understand the techniques and application principles of organizing as successful visual composition. We will be working with the compositional elements of line, shape, form, value, color, space, and texture and how they are used both as individual elements, as well as, how they are used collectively to create meaningful and dynamic pictorial compositions. This is a foundational workshop so no previous experience in compositional studies is required. This online workshop will be 7 weeks in length meeting once a week. Recommended media would be, colored panicles, watercolor, or acrylic paint. Additional recommended materials: drawing paper (no newsprint), drawing pencils (6H, 4H, HB, 2B) a good eraser(s) a notebook to take notes, small canvas boards if you are working with acrylic paint.

Upon completion of this workshop participants will have a collection of studies that they use in their own personal studios and use as source material for more in-depth and completed compositions.
