Color is a profound enrichment to our lives, for those of us fortunate enough to experience it. There are innumerable ways color is used throughout the world, from design to mood enhancement. Colors can be signifiers of larger concepts, or can simply add life to an artwork. In this class, students will take a deep dive into the world of Color Theory, ranging from (but not limited to) the basics to advanced uses of the color wheel, understanding primary/secondary/tertiary colors, exploring color relationships, engaging with concepts derived from Bauhaus movements, looking at color in nature, the science of color, and taking a closer look at artists whose work broke ground with uses of color in their own practice. Students will engage with different exercises to expand their palette and take bold chances in using color in their own work, using mediums from paint to construction paper and even found objects.

Prerequisite: Basic art-making experience helpful but not necessary.
