Setting up your accounts and preparing for the semester. Test submissions.
Figure & Ground
Ends September 9
Figure and ground are two extremely basic concepts you need to know.
Frame & Surface
Ends September 12
Choosing a the right frame and surface can make a big difference in your work.
Mark & Line
It may seem simple enough, but some artists can convey more in a line than others can in a lifetime.
Ends September 29
At the heart of many contemporary forms lies this basic structure.
Pattern can create a sense of rhythm and can also help harmonize elements.
Texture can be real, but it can be merely suggested as well.
Asymmetry & Balance
Too much symmetry can bore your viewer, but a lack of balance is just as bad.
Motion & Emotion
How do we depict motion? Is there any connection to emotion when we do so?
This portfolio will eventually become your Final Project as well!
Color & Value
One of my favorite topics and one of the most powerful tools in art.
Time & Space
Time and space aren’t just for physicists. Artist must have a command of these topics.
Transparency & Opacity
Ends November 30
Get a hold on using transparency as both a tool and a concept.
Unity & Coherence
Putting it all together.
