Learn about Color on Zoom
Please email me if you are interested in this, or, better yet, if you have a group that would like to do it. Read below and see if it is for you!
Did you miss color theory in school? Are you interested in using color to greater effect in your work? This ten part class has lots of homework to help you physically understand how to mix the colors you see and create the color combinations you want.
A total of 10 classes, the early-bird cost is $450 payable to me by check, Pay-Pal or Venmo @Julia-Talcott. At least 5 but no more than 10 Participants best.
This intensive class follows the book COLOR: A workshop for Artists and Designers 3rd edition by David Hornung. The author has taught at RISD among other schools and this book is the result of a lifetime of teaching. The curriculum is cumulative and the assignments build on each other. We work with gouache and paper and there are a fair amount of supplies you will want to purchase. (Enroll early so you have time to buy and receive your supplies. Supplies can run from $125-$200: we can go over this once you are registered.) The assignments require close attention and manual skills that can be learned with practice. Homework is submitted to a shared album I will invite you to with pictures taken with your iPhone. The result is a book of assignments that you will feel proud of, and can be a color reference for your work. Anyone who wants to can do it, with diligence and patience. To get the most out of this class please be prepared to set aside time to do your homework every week.
You may be thinking: “But I could do these exercises by myself!” and I would say: “Yes! It is true!” That is how I began this journey. What I offer in this class is structure that will provide accountability and joint learning opportunities along with the camaraderie of other color enthusiasts. It is an amazing curriculum that opens your eyes in a way you may not have thought possible. Former students, many of them professional artists, have found it has helped them to work with color with greatly increased confidence.
All work is done outside of class. Class is spent looking and talking about color together. Working on a computer screen makes this easy and immediate. The classes are taped and you can access them for a week after the class. We review the assignments and tenets of the book, chapter by chapter, while we get to know each other zoom-wise. If there is an opportunity and interest to meet in person at my studio we can also do that once or twice. TBD. Questions? Julia@juliatalcott.com or call 857-231-6538
