Tucson Art Academy Online - Phil Starke Workshop Schedule

PHIL STARKEJANUARY 14 - FEBRUARY 11 . 2013ALMOST FULLWEEK 1 | COMPOSITION AND VALUESIn this lesson the focus is to SIMPLIFY. Simplify the shapes, make sure the proportions are correct,  and reduce the values of each shape.  Complete with one dark and one light value,  then block in the local color by using the color wheel to determine the correct color. WEEK 2  | BLOCK IN COLOR AND BROKEN COLOR In this lesson we focus on breaking up the large areas of simple color. The broken color is a color change, not a value change. This will be an important part of this weeks lesson.WEEK 3 | BRASS AND GLASSThis week the focus will be how to approach different surfaces. Metals, such as cooper and brass, are very reflective. We will look for the extreme values. The   highlights and accents while keeping the color stronger  with  middle values. We will finish by looking for subtle color changes and softening the shapes edges.WEEK 4 | IMPRESSIONISTIC APPROACH      This approach is geared towards stronger color and center of interest. Think big and simple. Shapes not contour. Instead of starting with a value drawing and color block in we will use loose transparent washes of color with very little, to no white. This will help you to loosen up, not worry so much about your drawing skills, and stay away from rendering.
