Jessica Garrett-Lawrence: Understanding Color

$410/3-day Workshop

March 10, 2023- March 12, 2023

Understanding Color

The ability to understand color can easily be broken down into logical methodical elements. First we will learn, how to mix what we see by defining a color in terms of hue, saturation, and value. With this method, students will gain the capabilty to match any color with ease. Next we will discuss the use for a split primary palette, and the effects of transparent color. Students will understand the strengths and limitations of every color on and off their palette. Students will then see how to choose their palette for each painting to support their specific color goal.
