Elements of Form


Instructor: Jacqueline Jones
On-site: June 28 – July 2, Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

This course will give you a strong foundation to any genre of painting to follow whether landscape painting, still life or figurative work. Using geometric shapes in still life set-ups students will learn (or refresh skills) in: drawing, perspective, value, composition, depth of field and paint application. These shapes are found in the landscape, i.e. a cone may represent a spruce tree, the cylinder a tree trunk, a half sphere the bouquet of treetops and the cube a roughhewn rock. Like puzzle pieces, the halftones, cast shadows and reflected lights are key players that link the shade and light families. Aerial perspective is gained with overlap, size/scale change, value and elements.
