don’t, stop, Julie Gendron + Emma Hendrix, mixed media, 2007
First Friday: Designing Art by Julie Gendron
Free, everyone is welcome.
Design elements such as line, colour, value and space are all basic considerations when we create artworks, giving way to why the Golden Ratio works. However, as artwork becomes more technologically based, principles such as mimicry, affordance, iteration and constraint should also be considered. Julie Gendron will introduce these elements, with examples, as they pertain to the creation of artwork.
