Presentation at the James and Janie Washington Foundation


Friday, September 19, 2014

1816 26th Avenue 
Seattle, WA 98122

6-8pm

Join us for an inspiring evening with award-winning, French impressionist painter, Valerie Collymore. Combining a background in medical science with her current full-time professional art career, Valerie brings a unique perspective to the field of art instruction. 
Join us for an interactive discussion on topics which address:

The Science Behind Art:

▪ How does our vision system work and how can we use this knowledge to produce stronger artwork and to draw in viewers?

▪Why is it important to take frequent breaks from looking fixedly at our canvas while we work?

▪How can we simplify and use the mathematics of the Golden Ratio or Fibonacci sequence to make our compositions and designs stronger? ▪How can we use concepts from chemistry in our color mixing practice?
