Drawing Marathon: COLOR with Kaitlin McDonough and Guests

“The aim of such study is to develop–through experience–by trial and error–an eye for color. This means, specifically, seeing color action as well as feeling color relatedness.” -Josef Albers, Interaction of Color

This Marathon will elevate and expand our sensitivity to all aspects of color. We will place practice before theory to explore the wild richness of color functionality and mutability. Exercises will expand our understanding of hue, tone, saturation, deception, intervals, boundaries and color relatedness. We will prioritize conclusions drawn from what we observe firsthand and will trust our sense of sight above any preconceived notions of how a color might behave. Using colored papers and the teachings of Josef Albers, we will sharpen our awareness of the many ways that colors shift, bend, vibrate, radiate and co-create on the page. We will internalize a deep awareness of color and ways to work with color confidently. All levels welcome!  Cost: $1,625
