Developing Compositions: Ideas, Process, and Meaning 

            In this lecture, figurative artist, Patricia Watwood, will share her strategies and methods for developing compositions and discuss ways to jump-start your creative thinking.  She’ll share how to make “creative compost,” and her thoughts on how to stay inspired and cultivate your passion for making great work.  She will show the various steps in her process, like sketches and studies, and then discuss methods and strategies for scaling up a composition for a complex figurative work.  She will talk you through how to solve problems in gathering the resources and visuals you need to make interesting and imaginative work, and tips for working with models for poses that communicate your intention and feeling.
