Composition: Structure, Unity and Variety

Composition: Structure, Unity and Variety

Art reveals the evidence of our experiences and values. By observing and creating, the artist suggests themes that are essential to their character, and perpetuates the making and sharing of experiences. Through art, subjects become significant to us in unique ways, aesthetically and conceptually. Through lecture and demonstration, this workshop will reinforce the student’s understanding of composition, form and various methods of applying paint. Students will explore systems of dividing the space within the rectangle, distributing the lines and forms of the subject, and applying paint to the surface with various tools and techniques. Douglas will discuss the application of these principles to various subjects, including landscape, still life and portraiture. www.douglasfryer.blogspot.com
