Compositional / Visual Clarity with Bill Perkins

Compositional / Visual Clarity with Bill PerkinsCompositional / Visual Clarity with Bill Perkins is a one day workshop scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday September 19, 2010, at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra California.

Th workshop will focus on the role of composition in achieving visual clarity in storytelling.

That may sound dry, but the real goal is more exciting images; clarity is a big part of visual punch. If an image isn’t made clear by the arrangement of its compositional elements, it can’t communicate as well and visual power is lost. Clarity brings power.

According to Perkins: “I am going to start with an art timeline then lift the hood to reveal comparative systems of measure, visual components, and the primaries of design. Basically an intro into visual literacy to make distinctive imagery. The artists will then reconstruct the timeline without names, movements, or dates, only based on their graphic affinity to the primaries of design.”

Bill Perkins is a highly regarded plein air painter, concept artist, production designer and instructor at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art. For more, see my previous posts on Perkins here and here.

The event runs from 1:00pm to 4:30pm. Seats are limited.
