Thursday, June 28th 10am - 3pm
During this one day workshop, "Composition is King", internationally recognized pastel artist Christine Swann will teach students how to build solid foundations in composition for your paintings. This is a hands-on workshop that covers a system of armatures that masters have used to construct their portraits for many years. Learn how Degas, Sargent and contemporary masters plan their paintings. This is not a painting class, but rather a day spend on design and composition. This is a MUST class for artists, regardless of medium used.
