FALL 2012 ART CLASSES - Beginning the week of Sept. 10th


COMPOSITION is essential to the ultimate success of all image-making regardless of media. All Fall Classes will be focused on teaching expanded ways of approaching Composition. Using a variety of Still Life set ups from simple to complex we will explore issues of scale, placement, and symmetry. Students will also experiment with using the less often employed formats of squares and long or panoramic rectangles. We will be referencing the works of artists including Cezanne, Matisse, William Dailey, David Hockney, Picasso, Morandi, Charles Demuth, and others.
