Elements of Composition

This two day composition course touches on the way an artwork gets put together. The choices that the artist has in placing shapes, lines and colour in their art work. We will speak about the difference in horizontal, vertical and oblique art pieces, explain the ‘Golden Edge’ and how to lead the viewer’s eye into your art work. Working on an abstract landscape piece, the participants will come home with a piece of art of their own compositional choices. A great base for anybody who paints or draws! All materials and use of tools are included in the course fee.
