with Martin Wittfooth
Painting an Allegory: Concept to Canvas
Compose stunning allegorical paintings and bring them to life on canvas! Join Martin Wittfooth in the studio for a study in storytelling.

Learn the secrets to creating striking allegorical paintings that will fascinate viewers and ignite their imagination. Join instructor Martin Wittfooth for an exploration of professional painting techniques that will enrich your use of themes and symbols. You'll use three classic composition styles that will change the way you look at art -- the golden ratio, rule of thirds and diamond guide -- while venturing into the current era with digital composition tools like Photoshop. Wittfooth's expert tips will help you infuse underlying messages to your art in meaningful ways as you apply intentional focal points and more technical prowess to everything you paint.
