The Power of Composition with Amy Peterson
Saturday, February 29, 10am - 1pm. $45, supplies needed. $45 non-refundable, non-transferable deposit required to hold your place. Space is limited to 12.
When it comes to turning our photographs into paintings, how can we improve the odds for a successful painting by strengthening the composition, no matter what the subject is? While compositional choices are unique to each artist, the "Power-Point" presentation and Hands-on exercises in this workshop will help you think more constructively and creatively about your Compositions, and awaken insight about Design, Observation, and Art Appreciation. Amy will walk you through her steps with a variety of her own photographs that she has referenced for paintings. Amy uses the iPad Pro and the Procreate App as well as traditional thumbnail sketches on paper (you DO NOT need this App to benefit from the workshop). All levels welcome. All mediums welcome.
Materials and Agenda: Sketchbook, Sketching utensil. (Amy likes General's brand "Sketch & Wash" pencil). Optional: 1-2 of your photos that you are interested in referencing for paintings. Un-cropped if possible. These may be on a digital device such as a phone or tablet, or printed photographs.
"Wow!!! I had one of those “A-ha!” moments. Amy explains the material clearly and concisely and it has definitely helped me to grow as an artist." - V.M. (Artist review of this workshop)
