The Practice and Science of Color – Online Workshop

Joseph Albers

Color is fascinating and illusive! Understanding how the brain perceives color can give us a broader tool kit when it comes to working with color in artwork. Through a combination of slide talks and exercises we will strengthen your ability to play with color. We will reference research on color and vision done by Joseph Albers and Margaret Livingstone.
