These classes will focus on the Principles of Design. Students will have the opportunity to apply a variety of design principles within artwork created in monthly sessions.
September Class: Positive Negative Drawing
During this session, students will create a design using a detailed drawing and reversing positive and negative space. Organic and geometric shapes will add contrast to the finished piece of art. Examples will be demonstrated, but students will use their own creative thinking, incorporating the techniques from the demonstration. A mixture of materials and media will be provided to choose from, allowing students to analyze which best meets their artistic goal.
