JUST ADDED: FRIDAY SESSION!
Winter Series: "Simple is not Easy"
This course will focus on simplifying, organizing and clarifying visual information to create images that are elegant and impactful. We will answer questions like "How much detail do I need?" and "How do I simplify without making a childish painting?". Each class will consist of a 45-minute presentation followed by a Q&A session. We will do an online critique on January 26 and March 30. We will not meet the week of February 16th but an assignment will be given.
We will use the "Zoom" web conferencing app. You will receive instructions on how to use it prior to the beginning of the workshop.
