This course takes a look at the subjective notion of design. A good design can turn a mediocre drawing or painting into something compelling by dint of devices that are ‘under the radar’. This class will primarily involve working abstractly with watercolour effects and then intuitively collaging the generated elements together.
The act of collaging, as well as cropping, rather than direct painting or drawing on a surface from scratch, allows intuitive design arrangements that reveal some surprising results when subsequently analysed. Awareness of this ‘common sense’ aspect to design is not necessary to actually create designs; however, a recognition of these processes, and how they can provide useful tricks with which to improve the design of your painting will be of great value.
This course should leave you with an enthusiasm for the notion of design and provide you with a toolbox of design devices that you can apply to your own work and expand after the course through your own study, practice and observation.
