Every painter struggles with composition. If you create a painting with several trees, how is one tree related to another? What should be the proportions of each tree? How close should each one be to another? How you structure your painting can make a big difference on its intended effect. Elisabeth Rittinger, our workshop instructor, will help you with your quest to improve you composition.
When: Saturday, April 14th, 9:30 am to noon.
Where: Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre
Cost: $20 for members. $30 for guests. Cash, debit, credit or cheque.
More information: A meeting of the executive follows.
