As trainee artists – which we all are on some level – mastering techniques, methods and materials is given top priority, and quite often studying the art of composition takes a back seat. And yet, composition is the key to the success of a work of art, binding all of its visual elements together as a whole, conveying its message, and eliciting a particular response from the viewer.
This 10-week course explores the art of composition, from drawing to painting, focusing on:
- Principles and elements of composition
- Intuition and perception
- Picture plane dynamics
- The role of colour
- Compositional tools and techniques
- Symbols and meaning
- Analyses of Old Masters’ artworks
Our feeling for composition is very personal, and equally, the viewer’s eye is very subjective. Consequently, this course will have a stronger one-to-one component, and you will be closely guided by your instructor as you work on individual projects and assignments.
