Color Theory: Science and Art

Experience levels: All | Instructor: Laura Singer | Cost: $50

Saturdays, February 11 & 18, 2023, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Learn all about color theory in this two-day workshop designed for artists and designers of all mediums. Students will explore a little of the history and the science behind color as well as the artistic principles of creating and using effective color palettes. We’ll dive into what makes color, well, colorful.

This workshop will cover how to create inspiring color palettes that tell a story, how to mix pigments to create a rainbow of colors, and why certain colors work well as primary colors in a palette. By means of demonstrations and hands-on exercises, students will examine the color wheel of both additive and subtractive color systems, and students will work on a colorful art piece.

We’ll break for a half hour around noon, so bring your lunch.
