What is the subject of the workshop?      


To quote Dr.Donna Finch Adams,

Design  is the single most important course for those interested in making successful compositions and understanding why a piece of art becomes a masterpiece.

We will learn the selection and arrangement of the formal elements in a work of art;

line, shape, value, texture, colour and a sense of space, time and motion. These hold true in realistic, abstract and non-objective art. Under each of the above are the PRINCIPLES of design: unity, variety, balance, emphasis, directional guides, contrast, repetition, rhythm, scale, proportion, symmetry, asymmetry….etc.
