The Art of Composition and Design with Robert Armetta

2 Day Workshop May 14th and 15th

This intensive workshop will focus on the general compositional strategies and the application of simple geometric principles used by most of the great artists thoughout the ages. The emphasis will be on design, not mathematics. We will examine the work of artists and architects from the Renaissance to today in an effort to understand what the Golden Section is, and how it was used for composing with harmony and proportion. The practical, hands-on element of this course will help us utilize these principles in our own work.

Saturday May 14th- Sunday May 15th 10am- 6pm, $265,  PAY HERE or Send check made to "BCCAC" to Gold Light Gallery, 30 West Bridge Street #3, New Hope, PA, 18938. Registration is only complete when payment is complete. Materials List Here
