Basic Design

The Elements of Design are Color/Value, Line, Shape, Texture, Form/Space, and Unity/Harmony.  Abstract projects will be designed to build on one another for you to consider each of these. Each class will concentrate on a different element, one building on another, with home projects to finish for the next class. You will enjoy working your way through these projects and can apply what you learn in many directions: painting, collage, stained glass, weaving, and etc. This experience will also help you in art appreciation as you learn to identify the Elements of artwork you see in a museum or gallery.
