Composition & Design

What makes a painting work?

No matter if you plan your painting, or if you jump right in and design on the go, Composition & Design matter!

For this Zoom lesson, we are looking at paintings and trying to come up with answers:

-why am I attracted to a certain painting?

-why some paintings work better than  others?

-how can I make my painting stronger?


...they will be posted soon!

Purchase your ticket for the live zoom or just the recording (available after the live zoom)
