Project Description

The project for this class will be to complete a collection of 3 pieces that will show different results.

1) The first piece will be an experimentation of a limited color palette. You’ll select 3-4 colors and stick to those to complete your entire piece. 

2) Your second piece will focus on creative composition, where you choose what elements stand out to you and you arrange florals in a new way.

3) Lastly, once you’ve completed two pieces with separate focal points, you’ll blend these two elements together for your final piece to showcase your creative choices in both color and composition.
