The goal is to capture the essence of the subject matter that conveys a certain mood and atmosphere. You will learn: what to look for in a composition, how to build a strong design, ideas to simplify, how to see and interpret as an artist, how to create light and atmosphere, and how to express our emotions, etc. This is a fun class for all levels and each student will take away valuable information to move their skill to their next level.
