Zoom Workshop: Design Principles

May 1, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Saturday, repeating until May 2, 2021


This 4 week course serves as an introduction to the basic elements of design (line, shape, value, texture, space) and their organization on a two-dimensional surface through the principles of design (balance, unity, emphasis, repetition, rhythm, etc.) into effective design statements. Students will develop imagery from simple abstract line work to more complex representational imagery. For example, projects will include incorporating lines and solid shapes in one design. In another students will play with the juxtaposition of disparate objects in order to imply a narrative. Primary media are markers and cut paper. Each 2 hour session students will work on specific design problems learning the tools needed to create strong compositions. This course is invaluable for all artists, be they photographers, painters, sculptors, etc. as having the ability to create excellent compositions carries forward across multiple disciplines. Material list available upon registration.
