Create a composition of the life cycle of a tree with visiting artist Betsy Rogers-Knox. In this intermediate/advanced online workshop, you will explore key elements and principles of composition that can enhance and add interest to any piece of art. We will look at a variety of tree life cycle compositions to aid you in creating your own special piece. Choose a tree of your choice, and work in either graphite, watercolor, colored pencil, or any combination of these mediums. Step-by-step guidance, slide presentation, demonstrations and student critiques will be included over the course of three live, online sessions.
Find examples of Rogers-Knox’s life cycle work on her website.
