I have developed this class much like my popular Composition class that I have taught in live workshops all over the US, Canada and in Italy. Now brought to you in an online format!
Let me tell you a little background:
When I was in art college getting my BFA degree we had very rigorous training in the fundamentals. We took 2 years of classes in composition. Yes TWO YEARS! That's how important good composition is!
Well you can skip the two years of training because
I have boiled down various methods, gleaned from my art college days and developed surefire tools for creating strong compositions in your projects. Easy to learn and quick to implement, you will be making professional looking collages by the end of the first week.
Are you ever working on a project and you just feel something in your belly that says “this is not quite right but I don’t know how to fix it?” I will give you have the tools to know how to fix it so you can make your best work!
Each week I will go over a new composition method by video and slide show in a fun lighthearted and easy to understand format. You’ll have images to download and all the tools you need to work with, no extra supplies are needed.
It won’t be long before you discover how it easy it is and by using just a few new techniques, great compositions practically create themselves! Really!!
So whether you are a scrapbooker making the transition to mixed media work, or have been creating altered artwork for some time…. you will find the investment in this class will give back to you for the rest of your creative life! Gone will be the frustration of working on composition. You’ll know how to apply the tools of good composition and it will make ALL the difference in everything you create!
Here's what former student, Frances Peets said who took my Composition class last year:
My favourite class, with Claudine Hellmuth, taught me about Composition not only for collage but for scrapbook design and improving my photography skills. I haven’t looked back since I took Claudine’s class. It was a life altering and eye-opening artful experience!"
