Guy Aitchison: Biomechanical Composition
Approx. 2 hours, $200
Materials: Graphite pencils (either mechanical or bring a sharpener) and your eraser of preference
In this hands-on workshop, Guy goes into detail about making the most of the human form in composing powerful flowing abstract designs to fit the body in a flattering way. He supports these fundamental compositional rules with suggestions for creating lighting, depth and texture while exploring the limitless graphic language of abstract biomechanical design. Following his presentation the class will get an assignment to draw in a human anatomical template while he walks around the class, comments and gives advice toward making the most of each of the students’ compositions with emphasis on flow, fit, contrast and overall visual impact.
Guy will also be hosting a free Hyperspace Studios Paint Jam that same evening starting around 9pm- all artists are welcome to join and art lovers are encouraged to watch. People who attended Guy’s Biomech Composition seminar are encouraged to participate and will be offered suggestions and guidance.
