This ONLINE course will be appropriate for anyone wishing to improve their image design skills. We will work on developing our creative vocabulary and view a variety of references for study and inspiration. Throughout this course, we will work our way through a series of exercises that will focus on students executing more complex image creation by practicing and combining different composition strategies.  Artists with an interest in all media are welcome! Areas of focus will include, shape language and proportions, tonal composition, and colour planning.   

This is a level 2 course. A prior understanding of composition is recommended such as TSA's ONLINE:  Composition: Learning to See Creatively.   Composition: Learning to See Creatively
