Painting geometry: colour & composition with 12-fold patterns

  • St Luke's Community Centre 90 Central St London, EC1V 8AJ (map)

Booking via PSTA website. Design and paint an original geometric composition.

In this course, you will be introduced to techniques of how large and complex geometric compositions can be built using smaller repeating units.

Explore the fundamentals of tiling and tessellation using 12-fold geometries. Participants will be shown how tesselating techniques can be applied in various decorative contexts and apply these principles in creating an original composition of their own.

In addition, different approaches to achieving beautiful and harmonious colour will be introduced and each class member will then select one of these approaches to apply in painting their own design. By the end of the week, each participant will have completed a large, painted geometric design suitable for framing.

This course is suitable both for beginners and advanced geometry students.

Students will be asked to bring their own brushes; all other materials will be provided.
