The use of color by an artist can be both intuitive and intellectual. In this class we will discuss and practice the application of color and the language we use to describe it through some basic investigations. Media will be chosen to give immediate results. After these initial exercises we will set up some unique problems so that each student may bring their new color knowledge to intuitive use in making some color studies of their own. The goal of the class is to expand our color vocabulary and give each student some concrete results that they can take back to their own studio work for reference.
