How do visual artists tell a story? In the galleries of the Ashley Bryan show we will study visual principles such as focal point, grouping, repetition with variation, and continuation line. Then through conversation and drawing exercises we will explore how these principles undergird the composition of narrative art and thus support expressive meaning.
