Creativity and Composition
Let's face it; you probably became an artist because you have visual ideas bursting inside you. And if you've taken some of our other classes, you've developed the skills to realize your dreams. Why wait to share them with the world?
At this point, what you really need most is a nurturing mentor with a track record of realized images, who creates a safe, judgment-free workspace where you can loosen up, have fun and play. Come to our Creativity and Composition class and experience a positive, relaxed environment that will help you bring your most precious and inspired thoughts to artistic fruition.
Explore your creativity by developing an imaginative picture based upon an existing story that you select, or an idea that you originate. Work at your own pace to learn the time-honored steps of the creative, visual process – from idea generation, through preparatory work, to completed project. Emphasis will be placed on storytelling through composition and character development, as well as how color theory enhances visual communication. Students choose to work in the medium with which they are comfortable. We have experience to support pencil, charcoal, pen and ink, colored pencil, watercolor, egg tempura, and oils.
