The Bridge Between Seeing and Drawing – BIRDS

Tuesday, Thursday, June 22 & 24

Whatever your skill level, the key is understanding how seeing is not just looking. This session and future sessions, we will not only learn about the elements and principles but we will look at how they were used by specific artists and their work.

Elements of Art: line, shape, color, space, form, value and texture.
Principles of Design: Balance, contrast, emphasis/focal point, harmony/unity, movement, repetition, rhythm, pattern and variety.

Space:  Art Studio
