The above paintings were created by artists who just completed my Creative Challenge class. Each week we study different elements of design and composition. We always begin by learning about creating a center of interest and where best to place it on the format. We discuss that composition is the way in which we design the formats of our paintings. We learn ways in which to attract our viewer’s attention. We learn how to divide space and create contrast that is eye catching and not boring. We learn that paintings that include too much are difficult to read as well as the painting that does not have enough value contrast. We learn how to arrange the elements in our paintings in ways that are interesting and not boring. If you would like to view the rest of the paintings this class created you can scroll to the top of the page and click on the page that says, “Creative Challenge: Spring 2018” or click here.

Thank you to the students who gave their permission to share their paintings here.
