Constructing Color


This hands-on introductory level studio art class addresses color through traditional, digital, and experimental mediums. Students learn to compose and communicate via color, experimenting with light, paint, pigments, dye, code, context, and culture. In addition to exploring color as a powerful tool, students build personal palettes and learn to use color as an essential component in conceptualizing a work of art. Students create numerous short color experiments, a personal reference notebook, and a final work of art in any medium, using processes explored in class.
