Organic Geometry   22" x 28"   $19,500 - SOLD
Mamaroneck, NY
(5-Day Studio & Museum) $800
Mon - Fri, March 17 - 21, 2014

There are only two slots left available in this workshop.

This is a class I have not taught in a while and is back by popular demand.

Not all Composition is intuitive and solid precepts can be learned. It's important to understand why a design works so one can design well - consistently.

We will be dealing with the building of a picture from the ground up. Starting with the Linear Aspect of a picture we will address Balance, Unity, Variety/Interest & Contrast. We will then move into limited tone and finally, color. Enrollment is limited.

This studio course is exercise-based and will be held indoors at a private residence.
