Art 1 – Intro to Design & Composition


Art 1 – Intro to Design & Composition Overview

Welcome to Art 1 Intro to Design & Composition. Art 1 is intended to teach students how to design and compose images, primarily for levels 1 & 2 beginner and intermediate tattoo courses. The goal would be to teach students essential design skills needed to prepare artwork for a great tattoo.
Designs range from extremely basic, up to intermediate.

Lessons include:

Lines that move from one point to another whereby someone can visualize the smoothness of the stroke.

Shapes that make up objects and animations with character and personality.
Geometrical shapes, defined by mathematics, or more organic shapes as created by an artist.

Color as seen when light strikes an object and is reflected back into the eye. Hue, value, and chroma are described.

Space, positive and negative used to describe the surface quality of the work.

Value which refers to the degree of perceivable lightness of tones within the image you are working with.

Texture which is used to describe the surface of your work.

If you’ve never had a formal post-secondary art education and are considering a legitimate career in tattooing, Beginners Art 1 is an extremely important fundamental course for you.

This Course Includes:
– 52 Weeks (12 months/104 hours) of live classes with your instructor on zoom.
– Zoom sessions will all be recorded and uploaded every week in case you missed anything.
– Students will also have access to various theory and tutorial videos of in-depth explanations on the
concepts, tools and techniques to execute high level beginner art.
