This six-week class builds on the knowledge and practice of Fundamentals of Art Part 1 and will focus on the principles of design that are universal in the visual arts. Teaching artist Anne Pfeiffer will guide you through how these principles (balance, movement, rhythm, emphasis, proportion, variety, and unity) combine to create an effective finished work of art, acting as the hidden structure of a final piece.

This class will provide hands-on practice with a variety of art materials and techniques so that the foundations of art are something you can consistently return to. Through this class you will explore how these concepts have been used in historical and contemporary art. The knowledge gained in this two-part series will also strengthen your ability to read a piece of art and put into words what you like about a given piece or even why you feel moved by it.

Students will need a Strathmore 500 Series Mixed Media Visual Journal (9x12 or larger). All other materials are provided by Northwind Art School.

    After registration, course details are available via the Northwind Art School learning portal, including course syllabus and supply information. Learn more
