About This Class


In this class, you will take a look at how value affects how we perceive the world and how you can harness value theory to make creating content a little easier. For the final project you will create a Content Value Board. This board is a value study cheat sheet for creating your images with the most impact.

This class  will cover - composition, perspective, space, and value. Instead of applying these to a painting you will apply them to creating imagery. With all the noise that surrounds most people on a daily basis you only have a few seconds to convey your message. What you learn during this course is applicable to product lifestyle pictures, blog posts, or shareable social media.

Art Inspired By Everyday Things


Mychelle is the designing artist behind Watercolors By Design.  She has been painting for the past 25 years and her artworks can be found in collections throughust the Southeast.

Watercolors By Design was started on the premise to help others be inspired by their surroundings by exploiting the nature and properties of water-based mediums, fibers, and metals. This was accomplished by creating modern art that captured the little moments in life. The art was explicitly expressed to make one pause, ponder, and wonder at the small things often overlooked in a busy day. In those few precious seconds we can to see the bigger picture and remember the reason why life is precious.
