Advancing your Art Practice with Michael King

May 13, 2022


When: May 13th at 11:00 am (PST)

Advancing your Art Practice

This workshop will cover five techniques you can use to improve your artwork, no matter what you paint. We will work through composition & design, identifying and maintaining your focal point, establishing your painting’s key & value structure, using colour temperature shifting for interest & movement, and using variable edges. Each, on its own, has an impact but when combined brings significant life and interest to your work.
