Composition is the way to structure elements within space. The different way we compose the elements on a surface, either representational or abstract, can create a myriad of atmospheres and moods in our work. According to Kandinsky composition is the sum of the tensions internally organised.

In this intensive day exploring composition, we will discover both theoretically and practically, how lines, forms and colours create movement, depth and harmony in our artwork. We will use acrylic paint, soft pastels and paper collage for our exploration.

All basic materials provided, although we recommend bringing your own brushes if you have them.

Please wear clothing and footwear suitable for a studio environment and bring a bag to take work home with you.
