About the Event

Get a whole new perspective at the Introduction to Perspectives Workshop, now being hosted on August 1 & 2 at the Pike Road Arts Center (944 Wallahatchie Rd)! Artist Charles Payne will guide participants as they learn and utilize different perspective techniques.

Learning perspective is an excellent opportunity to relearn seeing. Perspective uses different methods to create a scene with a feeling of depth and clarity of relationships between the objects in it. From 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. on August 1 & 2, artists will mainly practice Geometric Perspective (including 1, 2, and multi-point perspective), but will also touch on other topics: finding the vanishing point, Size Diminution Perspective, Aerial Perspective, and other perspective methods. Artists will be provided with a booklet to help remember the lessons.

About the Artist: Charles D. Payne Jr. started his art career in the animation industry in 1984. Charles’ experience centered on background design, a perspective-intensive job. Charles is a formally trained artist who graduated from MICA in Baltimore. He has shared his knowledge and experience teaching storyboarding and sketching at the Cogswell Polytechnical College in San Jose, California.

This event has a $150 registration fee. Artists must pay a $50 nonrefundable reservation is due in advance, and the remaining $100 is due at the first class. If you missed out on registration the first time around, don't worry! Registration is reopened for this event. Email for registration and a supply list.
