Intro to Design: Color and Composition

with Laura Brown
Tuesdays: February 1, 8, 15, 22; 4:30–6:30pm CT

Developing a visual language is essential for any artist. This virtual workshop will provide participants with a framework for creating images through exercises based in observation, collection, and experimentation. Using a variety of materials and methods, participants will develop a series of studies to be referenced for ideas and inspiration when making future artwork. This workshop is great for beginners or those wanting to broaden their visual vocabulary.
