Visual Composition

Figurative painting
Alice Quite Mad by Christine Mitzuk

Back again! (Now in-person at The Atelier.) In this class you'll get hands on experience with visual composition tools. We will explore various elements of composition, visual hierarchy, mood, value design, color, and more through lectures, discussion, and sketching. We'll also analyze pictures to see what tools the artists used, and break compositions to see what happens when pictorial elements are altered. And what's the big deal with tangents?

There will be work in class as well as homework. Students will turn in assignments using The Atelier's Google Classroom. (Gmail account needed. Other options available.) A well-lit digital photo taken with your smart phone is acceptable. We will review everyone's work during class in a supportive way. Christine will use Photoshop to make visual notes and paint over student sketches.

Supply list available upon request or after you register. Please email Christine with questions.

This can also be a hybrid class. Students may attend class via Zoom.

Limit 8 students.
