Get a whole new perspective at the Get a whole new perspective at the Introduction to Perspectives Workshop on April 18 & 19 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 re-learn 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 April 18 & 19, 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.
