These elements are required foundations for all future artwork created by TAD students. Armed with this knowledge, students will be able to identify what is wrong with their own work, and will strengthen their ability to create cohesive and unified images. This essential class cultivates an artist's ability to create images which contain purposeful moods and helps to give emotional impact to their works from imagination, reference and life.
With a full body of compositional theory compiled over years of studying with renown painters, illustrators, and entertainment developers and a decade of research and work by Jason Manley, TAD students will see rapid improvement in their works during and after this valuable class.

In his career Jason worked as a concept artist, lead artist, art director, and executive. His clients have included Activision, id software, Sony, Blizzard, EA and 170 other renown creative firms. Jason is an alumni of the Illustration Academy and the creator of the International Art and Design Workshops where he has taught composition to more than 8000 students and 400 companies from around the world.
About Terry Brown: For 25 years Terry Brown was the Director of the Society of Illustrators in NYC. Terry has since gone on to Direct at the Norman Rockwell Museum and is of the most respected leaders in the fields of art and illustration anywhere.

All classes are available On Demand hours a day and Live, this means you can attend even if you live in the farthest time zones or have work during the Live class times. On Demand students will have the opportunity to get direct input from their faculty and professional reviewers as if they were right there with you and Live attendees can speak and interact directly with their instructors.

Below are some images from my previous composition classes. There are hundreds of images and reproductions that will be utilized, many that have not been published on the internet and we will also have additional guest artists, demonstrations in both digital and traditional media, and will look at a variety of entertainment design, illustration, and fine art images. See you soon.
