Ever wondered why one artwork sings whilst another just looks ordinary? The answer is in black and white!

 ‘Notan’ is a Japanese word used to describe the balance of light and shade in a painting. Although most of us are unaware of it, the pattern of light and dark in a picture is the single most influential factor in our appreciation of any artwork.  Through a series of exercises and demonstrations we will learn how to design successful pictures every time.

This workshop is a real must for anyone looking to improve their understanding of how to make a picture feel balanced, interesting and memorable. It is suitable for learners of all levels, beginners are very welcome whilst those who have attended previous workshops will find plenty of room for further development.

Using ‘notan’ you can determine whether a picture will succeed or fail in just 2 minutes! Suitable for learners of all levels in all media, this workshop is also excellent for photographers and designers.
