This is a continuation of the first Artist's Toolbox course in which the basic Elements of Art,  the basic letters of the visual alphabet are taught.

Now it's time to put the Elements together to create meaning in your compositions. Letters of the alphabet brought together in various combinations create words with meaning. When the elements of texture, shape, line, color, and value work together, they create compositions using the Principles of Unity, Focal Point, Balance, and many others.

A course designed to help you see, understand and be able to communicate in using the visual language of art.

The Elements of Art are the building blocks for every piece you create. It doesn't matter if you consciously think about each the elements as you create or if you design intuitively from start to finish. Every single work of art you see and create is made of various combinations of texture, shape, line, color, and value. They are the basic five-letter alphabet of the visual language.

The Elements of Art is one of my favorite classes to teach.  It's fun like kindergarten playtime, but also a SERIOUSLY INFORMATIVE, IN DEPTH and INTENSE study of composition. Gaining an understanding of how the basic elements of texture, shape, line, color, and value function in a composition, can be life changing for an artist, especially if you are not formally trained. If you have been to art school, this refresher is presented in such a clear and easily understandable way that you will feel you are learning it for the first time.
