Seeing color is a skill we can improve through practice. Anyone who uses color in painting, weaving or any other visual media knows that color is essential to the success of a piece. In this 3 hour class we will explore the elements of Hue and Value and how they impact each other in our design work. We will do a series of simple exercises designed to tune up our color perception and we will talk bout how colors interact with each other. We will learn some simple methods of “designing” color ways for or work.
