Color Theory and 2D Design Minimester Winter Session

Color Theory and 2D Design Minimester Winter Session


Three sessions on Sunday afternoons, 12pm - 3pm

Upcoming dates:

  • February 3, 10, 17



In this mini-mester course we will be surveying the history of color theory, taking pages from Josef Alber’s “Interaction of Color” to experiment with illusions and transparencies created by color combinations and its subsequent effect on the eye. We will look at examples by color field and abstract expressionist painters, in addition to examples of color theory in graphic design and advertising. 

All levels are welcome. Painting materials will be supplied.
