A 1-day introduction to the use of Dynamic Symmetry and Harmonic Armatures in Composition for beginning and advanced painters.
Saturday, Nov 4. 9-4
At the fabulous Bluebird Studio in Santa Fe
From the Classical Greek Era to the present, artists have been using armature or grid systems based on musical and mathematical principles to help create harmonious paintings. The armatures form a scaffolding for paintings, providing stability and a road map for the design.
Participants will learn how to use armatures to design their paintings or to evaluate existing paintings. Examples of artwork will be analyzed - participants' and Master Artist paintings.
Karen has a background teaching introductory math to liberal arts students. She has been a practicing artist in Santa Fe for over 20 years, after leaving the academic world and a career in computers in Manhattan.

* "Radical" is a play on words; it's the term Mathematicians use for 'root'; eg, square root. But in addition, radicals play a part in armatures.
