The Education Committee has worked hard to put together a meaningful experience exploring color and many of its aspects. Humans are visual creatures. Since early in their development, they made color images on cave walls to describe their experience of living.
In this seminar, we will explore the source of color; various color theories; what it means to work with color; the science of color; how artists use color; and the history, language, and culture of color through interviews, articles, and interactive exercises. We will also provide time for live discussions on the topic and how you might be incorporating the information into your work. A gallery will also accompany each unit. This is not a “how-to” seminar, but an exploration of concepts and the experience of color. SAQA Seminar is free but only available to members.
