September 15, 2020 – 6 to 8pm – This class focuses on the ‘big picture’ which really means the underlying composition structure. Pre-class work exercises will get you thinking simply. In class, we’ll review the pre-class assignment and then work on a complex scene that has been compositionally simplified.
September 22, 2020 – 6 to 8pm – This week is focused-on ‘shape-making’ – a crucial aspect of ‘big picture’ composition. Pre-class assignments will show easy ways to create dynamic, eye-catching and meaningful shapes. In class we’ll expand our shape-making ability with a simple still life painting .
September 29, 2020 – 6 to 8pm – Great compositions are supported by simple, well-placed value shapes. Pre-class assignments focus on placement and arrangement of these simple shapes. In class we’ll analyze arrangements from pre-class assignements and develop them into compositions for painting.
October 6, 2020 – 6 to 8pm – In the final class, we’ll work on the painting compositions from the previous week. Pre-class assignment will have you create working studies of the composition. In class, we’ll review your studies and work on finished paintings based on our studies.
