    Subject this week:  #3 Abstraction: What to leave out?
    For this class you don’t need to have taken the “Introduction to Gestalt Theory” but we’re going to explore one of the concepts discussed: Closure.  The brain is good at filling in gaps to create a whole.  Interesting abstraction often leaves a lot for the viewer to interpret, but how do you know what to leave out?  In this class we will explore this idea.
