VIRTUAL WORKSHOP Color: A Workshop for Artists and Designers

Jan 10 - 21, 2022

Monday, Wednesday & Friday, 1-4PM MST

Concept

Based on David Hornung’s textbook Color: A Workshop for Artists and Designers, this class provides a deeper understanding of color and the confidence to use it in your work. Under expert guidance you will make a sequence of practical studies that will reveal color structure, its relational behavior and useful strategies for color harmony. Class time is devoted to illustrated lectures, demonstrations and discussions of class work. Because the class meets intermittently, there is ample time to complete assignments. This informative and relaxed course is an excellent choice for painters, textile artists, graphic designers and anyone who makes two-dimensional art.

Media

All studies are smaller than 11 x 8.5” (letter size) and made with hand painted color swatches that are cut and collaged using glue stick on card stock. Recommended paint is acrylic gouache (see materials list for specifics). The technique is simple, direct and requires no prior painting experience.

Mixed Media Collage

Leslie Shows

Tuition $1,950
Code JANSTU2022D

Join this exciting January intensive workshop to merge photography, painting, collage and digital fabrication technologies. We explore contemporary examples of layered mixed media work and delve into formal as well as technical approaches for combining diverse imagery to create a unique visual language. The class combines structured projects with individually-directed works, one-on-one critiques with the instructor, and group feedback. In addition to working in analog collage and painting processes, students use vector drawings and digital images to create shapes, stencils and image transfers with CNC, laser cutting and digital printing on various substrates. The workshop takes place in the wood loft and makes use of the photography/new media labs as well as the FabLab so that students can explore many possibilities for making dynamic and multilayered imagery. The instructor will be present from 9AM - 12PM each day and students will work independently in the afternoons. Students will have additional access to the Digital Fabrication and Photography & New Media studios during monitor hours on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7-9PM.

VIRTUAL WORKSHOP Color 2: A Workshop for Artists and Designers Continued

David Hornung

Tuition $695
Code D16W01-22

This second installment of David Hornung’s color class is for students who have taken his first workshop and would like to go deeper. In Color 2 we explore the development of color interrelationships through a variety of mixing strategies and conduct color research into natural and manufactured sources. We also examine specific color applications like progression and the illusion of transparency and study the way color works with shape to create spatial hierarchy in a two-dimensional image. As with the previous class, meetings are on alternate days (MWF) which allows ample time to complete assignments. The materials list is identical to that of Color 1, linked below. The prerequisite for this workshop is David Hornung's class, Color: A Workshop for Artists and Designers, click here for details.
