Here or There? Composition Basics
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Composition is a big word. You might not know what it means yet. But - surprise! - you use it every time you draw a picture.
 
2     Composition is how your picture is arranged. To plan their composition, artists might draw sketches before they do their real picture. Artists think about the subjects and the feelings in the artwork. They decide whether to put objects here or there.
 
3     First, you have to decide how much area you want to include in your picture. This is called the picture area. It is like looking through a camera lens. If you decide to draw a bowl of fruit, will the edges of the bowl be at the edges of your picture? Or do you want to show the table the bowl sets on? Do you want to show the walls of the room it is in?
