This workshop will help students understand more about the Elements (tools to make art) and Principals (how to use the tools to make art) of Design as a Vehicle for Abstraction . The Elements consist of: Line, Shape, Form, Colour, Value, Texture & Space. The Principals are: Pattern, Contrast, Emphasis, Balance, Scale, Harmony, Rhythm, Unity & Variety. We will explore these concepts with several images of the students choosing. Having painting ideas will help move this workshop along. This workshop will generate many small studies for larger works. This course is suitable for the creative beginner to an advanced student.
