Examples of Past Programs:
October 4, 2019: Deborah Van Brunt - Critique
Have you run into a dilemma on a current art piece over the summer? Or a recurring challenge in your work? Or, maybe you keep looking at a completed work and just aren't quite happy with it? Input from a new set of eyes, from a group of supportive fellow artists, might help! If you're game, come to our session on October 4. Bring one of your pieces and we will try to help each other with constructive suggestions. We may need to limit the critique to the first ten who sign up to bring a art piece, but everybody is welcome to come and offer her insights. Call her by September 30 if you can attend and if you would like to be critiqued.
November 1, 2019: Polly Curran - Photography, Design and Composition
A work of art begins with a blank canvas, a sketch pad and in the case of a photographer an image waiting to be defined. A photographer creates a visual composition thru the lens of the camera much like an artist composes at her easel. What makes a piece eye-catching and dynamic, or calm and soothing? Incorporating the Principles of Design: color, balance, alignment, repetition, contrast and space assist in creating a composition pleasing to the eye. In this discussion we will take a look at Design Elements that are the basic units of any visual composition which form its structure and conveys a visual message. Artists and photographers alike make use of these tools. Diagrams and examples will be used to highlight these attributes. This presentation will be held at the home of Karen Mathis.
