Students will work on compositional planning, using the practice of notan and value studies to get everything down before the light shifts. ​We will be at one location in the morning and another in the afternoon. The goal is that with careful planning and a clear focus, students will be able to paint a successful painting as the light shifts. About Deena Ball:​ Deena S.
