Design Workshop Day 2 is a follow-up day  to the  Design Workshop Day 1

Day 1 is  is purely a theoretical day but Day 2 is  a more practical day. 


 At least two designs will be done over the day. The designs will be created from photos taken specifically for the workshop. Each design will employ prescribed elements and principles of designs. The aim is not to create literal images from the primary sources. 

Preparation for this workshop involves YOU, the participant, taking photos of:

  • Crowd situations 

  • Cityscapes (buildings, shop fronts, etc – take photos from different angles) 

  • Landscapes (can be gardens) – take photos from a distance as well as close ups – take these from different perspectives


The photos must have great clarity and are to be printed in colour on A4 paper. Bring at least four photos for each group. On the day, please bring:

  • Mary Brown’s booklet on Design Elements and Principles

  • Photos (as prescribed above)

  • Good quality sheets of drawing paper or an artist’s journal

  • Tracing paper 

  • Drawing materials – artline pens or/and ‘lead’ pencils which must be at least B or above.

  • Ruler


Any enquiries, please contact Mary Brown on 98581326 or email her at mary@marybrowndesigns.com 



 

Mary took photograph of Henri Matisse's 'Still Life with Geranium' 1910 at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich last.   Matisse figures very prominently when talking about the
elements and principles of design.
