Paint with Kato! MONDAY JUNE 22

MORE THAN EVER we need to make time to play, and not worry. Learn a few design and painting fundamentals from Kato – disguised as ‘play’. Get out of your head and give yourself a break. Learning will never be this much fun. Complete beginners welcome. All ages. Even dad’s and their kids! Classes will use ZOOM platform (info upon signing up).

 

COMPOSITION!
JUNE 22 from 2:00 to 3:30

Design fundamentals, line, shape, colour, value, form, texture, and space, form the structure for visual art. Compositional elements, balance, contrast, emphasis, movement, pattern, rhythm, unity/variety, focus and proportion, are manipulated and intertwined to express personal viewpoint and artistic license. Instead of falling into the abyss of bad composition, learn what to look out for, and make better design decisions.

SUPPLIES for MONDAY’S COMPOSITION CLASS (if you want to paint along. Of course you can just sit back and watch, no pressure.) We’re going to keep on playing with black and white.
• Some sheets of crappy paper – like photocopy printer paper
• pencil
• eraser
• black paint (or in a pinch, a dark colour) – black gesso, black acrylic, any black fast drying paint
• masking tape
• brushes (small, medium. large) and your new favourite markmaking tools!
• water
• paper towels
• One or 2 pieces of BIG PAPER (even a roll of paper that you could cut up? Doesn’t have to be good quality.) 24 x 18, or 22 x 14, or 22 x 30….you get the idea, bigger than 8.5 x 11. Go big!
*DIVIDE your big paper into 4 quadrants, or 2 if your paper is smaller…so you get 4 or 2 sections that are approximately 9x 6 inches, surrounded by masking tape. Photo is below.
Optional if  you have it:
charcoal, water soluable graphite, black crayons, oil pastels, markers….anything that will make a black mark!!
Contact Kato if you have any questions or need any help!
