Flowing Inspirations: Design & Composition Painting workshop
with Artist, Jennifer Koury
3-Day Workshop on Fridays, February 2nd, 9th, & 16th from 9:30am – 12:30pm
The Roycroft Campus – 21 South Grove St. East Aurora, NY
In this workshop, students will experiment with a random wash of color that will inspire a composition. Students will begin their design process creating flowing, textural shapes with ink, acrylic, watercolor, gouache and pastel – alcohol washes. Color harmony and design elements will be discussed while developing either an abstract composition or a composition based on a theme. Participants will draw and paint details within the preliminary composition for a focal point and compositional movement, using color and texture in design choices. Compositional themes might include aquatic, botanical, landscape, fauna, and/or architectural, or stream of consciousness. This class is open to those of any experience.
Since students have the option to work in the paint medium of their choice, all materials will be supplied by each individual. See the suggested Supply List.
