David Hornung’s color workshop is an intensive, compressed version of the curriculum he developed at Rhode Island School of Design. It is based on his book, Color: A Workshop for Artists and Designers. Students paint and collage a series of small projects that establish key color principles, explore several modes of application, and end with “free studies” wherein students get the opportunity to experiment in ways related to their own design interests. Studio work is supplemented with daily PowerPoint presentations and discussion.
Note: This course accommodates students at all levels and requires no painting experience.
Note: the materials fee includes all of the supplies required for the workshop, including paper, paints, brushes, newsprint, etc.
