n this one-day workshop, a supportive and open environment, will encourage students to develop new ideas through exploration and a willingness to be playful.

The course will cover the basic color and design principles, including methods for manipulating pictorial space and depth. This workshop is available to students at all levels because it is tailored to each individual participant. The only prerequisite is to come to class with a curiosity and willingness to experiment.
