Composition Art Lab

with Svetlana Shkuratova

Composition Art Lab

Level: All Levels

Strong composition is vital to the success of a piece of art, whether it’s a drawing, painting, photograph, ceramic vessel or sculpture. A skillful and conscious application of composition is what helps the artist capture the viewer’s eye and hold their attention. A good composition can tell a story or convey a mood.

In this lab, we’ll cover in detail the basic elements of design and how to organize them to create a pleasing visual whole. We will also look into how these elements can evoke certain emotions and reactions from your audience. As rules of composition are universal and can be applied to any form of visual art, there will be plenty of examples covering different forms of art including painting, photography, ceramics, sculpture, and fiber art. During the second half of this lab we will discuss how we apply and use composition in our own art practice and share some tips and tricks from our own process.

This workshop is being offered through our Gathering of Artists Series.
