Working directly from Albers’s teaching notes and student recollections, Albers Foundation educator Fritz Horstman will lead experiments such as “make one color become two” and “the four color worlds”. Josef Albers’ color course was legendary. The Bauhaus master, who also was director of Black Mountain College and head of the Yale School of Art, taught generations of students to see color in new and unexpected ways. Over a lifetime of teaching, he created a series of exercises that opened up the subject of color. In this four hour workshop, we will explore a few of these exercises. There is no prerequisite of painting or color experience.
All materials, including ColorAid paper, will be provided. Participants will be able to take their exercises home.
