The Artist's Brain in Gear

This event is free and open to the public.

An illustrated 45 minute talk about the elements and principles of design and how the artist solves problems in design.  This talk includes examples from paintings from important Canadian artists (and a few of my own) to show how artist use rationality as well as serendipity.  There may even be a surprise or two.

Questions and discussion to follow.
