Color Theory Level I with Kerstin Engman
Sat, May 20, 2017, 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM EDT
8 SESSIONS: Saturdays from May 20 through July 8 from 9am-1pm
(Meeting on July 1 will be discussed by students and instructor)
This 8-session class moves sequentially through a series of exercises that demonstrate the behavior of color in specific conditions, as the painter learns to identify color relationships. In addition to the in-class lessons, assignments issued each week will be completed at home. Attention is paid to identifying what we see in terms of color, interpreting information and translating observation into a mix, learning color interaction, handling paint.
In the beginning, we focus on the essentials that establish a foundation for moving on to more advanced work. Later, as the course progresses, there will be occasion to put these essentials into practice as we paint directly from observation.
Weekly critique provides opportunity to clarify concepts and discuss whatever’s going on in the group.
All are welcome - no previous experience needed. This course benefits anyone with an interest in color - pastel artists, watercolorists, designers, photographers, painters, sculptors, fiber artists, ceramicists.
Supplies for Level I are in the range of $75 in addition to the fee, but students may already have many of the supplies so this is just a ballpark number. For the first session, all supplies are provided by the instructor.
