Located in : Watkins College of Art, Design & Film, CE
Instructor: Richard Heinsohn

Adult: $100.00
Students will learn through painting, pastel drawing and collage the phenomenon of how colors gradate from one to the next and work together to affect mood. A comprehensive study of primary, secondary, tertiary values, hues, and colors will be studied as well as the full spectrum of complementary color use and temperature. References will include Kandinsky: Concerning the Spiritual in Art (which contains his color symbolism theories) and the theory of "Push Pull" by Hans Hoffman, as well as a brief summation of early symbolism with color from the Renaissance and Byzantine eras. Students who take this class will come away with a much improved ability to mix colors and use color effectively.
