  • Class 4: Composition

    Class 4: Composition
    Today we're going to learn what a composition is, what types of compositions artists use, and how to make our artwork into thoughtful compositions. We'll look closer at the work of the Clayton Brothers. We'll end the class with a game called Exquisite Corpse, to help us generate ideas for the next layer: text.
  • Class 5: Text

    Class 5: Text
    Today we'll be incorporating text (letters, words, and phrases) into our Clayton Bros. projects. We'll also be using our knowledge of composition to put together all the elements we have so far, gluing everything onto our backgrounds.
  • Class 6: Photomontage

    Class 6: Photomontage
    Photos, newspaper and magazines will be your resources for cutting out and combining images onto your Clayton Bros. projects. This class is a good opportunity for those who've missed classes to catch up.
