In this five-week course, participants will explore creative concepts, colors and designs to be able to see the world as an artist does, recognizing unique arrangements of shapes instead of literal objects. Thinking in these terms, participants will begin to think like “artists” and open their world around to more possibilities for paintings. Creating small studies will help you work out the main design before moving on to a finished larger piece. The idea is to first get things down on paper or panel to see if your composition is working, while trying to achieve an interesting arrangement of shapes, colors and edges.
