Jill Carver will discuss how unity and variety are paramount to create overall harmony in a painting. Over three days she will explore design tools relating to the core components of shape, value and color; one day being dedicated to each of these.
Not only will Jill be explaining how to manage each of these elements but also how to explore the visual ‘what-if’s’, experiment, and identify ways to produce personal, poetic, intentional paintings. Jill embraces the notion that creativity - and fun - are rooted in the design choices we make.
She will also explain how the choice of design/compositional tool should be dictated by the subject matter and what an individual artist wishes to say about it.
Jill will structure the workshop through set exercises, slide-shows, lectures, demos and brainstorming discussions. Students will be working from their own visual material, as well as that provided by Jill.
Jill will also endeavor to have a social evening get-together for one of these evenings.
