Conversations on Color | Sep 25 - 27 | Lisa Pressman & Richard Frumess


Class Level: Intermediate-Advanced.

Join Lisa Pressman and Richard Frumess for an exploration into color. This class strikes a balance between history and science with constructive hands-on applications to enhance your artistic practice. Participants will learn how to understand colors by their hue, chroma, and value, as well as the factors that differentiate characteristics like opaque, translucent, transitional, and so on. Lisa guides the class in hands-on exercises that integrate painting fundamentals to refresh your understanding of how color effects balance, contrast, movement, pattern, unity/variety, and composition.

Exercises are grounded in abstraction and attention is paid to the use of personal symbols and markings that could interface with any imagery. Ideas presented in this class include an in-depth exploration of hue, chroma, value, temperature, and opacity; health and safety; layering; using cold wax; building a surface; composition; mark making; and combining with oil paint with Pigment Stick and cold wax. This class is perfect for artists who are familiar with Pigment Sticks and basic oil painting and would like an opportunity to refine their understanding of color mechanics and compositional rules.
