Moroccan Café by Matisse, 1913

Composition is one of the most important elements of any artwork. This workshop examines fundamental concepts of composition and their practical application in studio-art practice, offering participants tools to enrich their work as well as to analyze and appreciate visual art in general.

The sessions include a visual presentation, discussion, and hands-on exercises, helping participants gain a finer appreciation of compositional aspects such as structure and balance, positive and negative space, contrast, and color. They create several collages based on art works and themes discussed and explore connections between formal elements of visual art and the emotional impact of works of art.
