ONLINE COLOR CLASS: A ten-week intensive color exploration based on:
“COLOR: a Workshop for Artists and Designers” 3rd Edition by David Hornung
Thursdays 2-4 ET on Zoom: beginning February 18, 2021. $425
This is an in-depth course in applied color. Every week you will be painting with gouache on paper, cutting and gluing to create a book of color designs and samples you can use in your work going forward.
What you will need: “COLOR: a Workshop for Artists and Designers” 3rd Edition by David Hornung, and materials listed in the introductory chapter. Time. Patience. A dedicated workspace is helpful. A willingness to really look and an open mind.
The class begins Thursday February 18 on Zoom 2-4 EST. It continues for a total of 10 classes: February 25 March 4,11,18,25 April 1,8,15,no class April 22 (so you have extra time for the final project) and then ends April 29. The cost is $425. It is payable to me by Venmo @Julia-Talcott. . Once you have paid for the class you are registered and on the roster!
The class follows almost exactly the book COLOR: A workshop for Artists and Designers3rd edition by David Hornung. I add a splash of other color gurus like Josef Albers, but mostly we follow the book. The author has taught at RISD among other schools and this book is the result of a lifetime of teaching. The curriculum is cumulative so it is very helpful to do all the assignments, as they build on each other. We work with gouache and paper and there are a fair amount of supplies you will want to purchase. We can go over this once you are registered. The assignments require close attention and manual skills that can be learned with practice. A dedicated workspace is recommended. Homework is submitted to a shared album I will invite you to with pictures taken with your iPhone. I can walk you through this. The result is a book of assignments that you will feel proud of, and can be a color reference for your work. Really anyone who wants to can do it. I have done this book three times and I learn something new every time. My students so far have loved it.
Basically I will be your coach and you will have a group with which to discuss what you are learning once a week.
All work is done outside of class. In class we look and talk about color together. We review the assignments and tenets of the book, chapter by chapter. We will get to know each other zoom-wise.
I hope that all sounds good! If it does please let me know, buy the book and Venmo me! Once you have done all of this we will be on our way. If you have any other concerns or questions let me know.
