How to make collages, mix your media, explore materials and methods for successfully combining paper, fabrics and more.

This workshop is an over-view of color and color-combining strategies including simultaneous contrast, afterimage, elusive and transitory colors, contextual color perception and others. Projects will be collage-based using magazines and Albers Color Packs.

Participants will be exposed to numerous exam-ples created by Josef Albers to help them understand that color is dependent on its surroundings and is not independent on its own. Also, participants will learn how we see color, what influences color, and how we respond to color.

Understanding color will help when creating artwork, designing your home, or creating important paper-work necessary in the 21st Century. Color is exciting and challenging.

Class size limited to 15. Materials list provided on registration.
