About This Class

Composition is the one of the most important yet often neglected aspects of image-making. In this class you'll learn how to use composition to guide the eye towards the center of interest and also how to achieve balance in the picture. In the assignment you will learn a great way to brainstorm ideas and work out the composition before beginning a new painting/drawing/illustration.
