Dynamic Design - Contrast (Feb. 2024)

Feb. 5, 12, 19 & 26, Monday Nights at B.Marie's Atelier & Gallery.

Contrast is an essential design principle used for compelling compositions. Our eyes are naturally drawn to contrast. However, there are many ways to create contrast within your composition to direct the viewer’s eye through the piece. Learn how to use the principle of contrast to create drama and interest in your artwork.

Design exercises will explore ways to use the principle of contrast through abstraction and help you organize your composition by tone (light and dark values). You will also have the opportunity to apply what you have learned about contrast and tonal organization to your artwork in the style and medium of your choice.
