In this class you will explore the works of numerous outstanding wildlife artists and meet several local artists that focus their works on nature, each in their own way. Do you ever wonder why certain paintings and drawings appeal to you more than others? Seeing is not a mechanical process. “The eye is blind to what the mind does not see,” says an old Arabian proverb. And for the mind to see, it must not only be on the alert but be capable of seeing. Science and Art look at things very differently. Science deals with things as they are; Art (that is, Representative Art) deals with things as they appear and how you feel after looking. What makes certain works of art especially attractive to you? Visual arts are related, for they are based on the same visual elements and the same principles of composition, whether they are painting, photography, landscape design, architecture. Art is a language that you will come to understand and appreciate.
