COURSE OVERVIEW • 5 Day Workshop
This class is FULL! Please call 315-255-1553 to be put on a waitlist.
Based on David Hornung’s textbook Color: A Workshop for Artists and Designers, this workshop is designed to give you a deeper understanding of color and the confidence to use it in your work. Through a series of small, carefully guided assignments you will explore the structure and relational nature of color. You will examine essential concepts through illustrated lectures, demonstrations and the clear discussion of class work. This informative and relaxed course is an excellent choice for painters, textile artists, graphic designers and anyone who makes two-dimensional art. 

On class days, students should expect to spend the day working on their assignments and attending meetings between 9am and 5pm ET. Students will not be required to spend the majority of their time in front of their screens. Each course is optimized to create a balance of screen time and work time.  

Each meeting is recorded and all course material is available for 1 month after the course concludes.
