Composition & Design with Gaetanne Lavoie
< "Thai Train" oil on canvas by the Instructor [click to see full view]. This 4 week mini-course, uses Still Life as the subject to learn the rules of good picture design. Each student will create their own set-up in a cardboard box to create a composition that works on their chosen surface. Referencing some techniques of the Masters, students will learn about cropping, using a viewfinder, overlapping (a great tool to create depth and visual interest). Gaetanne will also touch on the golden ratio; Perspective: aerial, atmospheric, one point, up to three point perspective; Focal point: what is it and why it’s important. Value pattern, light and shadow in composition and more!
Thursdays 9:30 am -12:30 pm 4 weeks [12 hrs] beginning Feb 14 ~ March 7 [Early Bird N/A]
