About This Class

Photography, painting, drawing - all rely on strong composition. 

Learn seven different layouts that help you develop compelling compositions. I will lead you through each format with examples from old masters, modern artists, as well as my own work. As you work through the projects, you will gain confidence in your decisions for subject matter and color choices.

  • Become familiar with the Elements of Art and the Principles of Design.
  • Be able to define and use tried and true formats to configure a successful piece.
  • Learn how to speak with authority on how to build successful artwork.
  • Be able to edit your work with a practiced eye for what the next step should be.
