Whether you have been painting for years, or are just starting out, it is important to have a well-stocked and organized ‘toolbox’. We are talking about the design ‘tools’ you use to make creative decisions.
Each day we will focus on a general concept of art that is applicable to every student no matter his or her level of experience, or preference for style or media. We will explore concepts like dominance, contrast, line, shapes and edges and how to use them to tell YOUR unique story, reflecting your observations, emotions and beliefs.
A grasp of these not-so-basic design tools will give you a clear, workable, consistent, repeatable process for making creative decisions and conveying your unique intention.
