Color Theory / Color Design Workshop
By Amy Hendrix, President of Madelinetosh
What you will learn:
General color theory and how light alters color perception
The Albers color theory and the importance of understanding how colors
interact with one another
What color pairings great artists have chosen historically to create
How to combine colors to generate complimentary pairings in your knitting
How to select colors to pair with your hair, eyes and/or complexions.
How to include bright colorways in your knitting in ways you will actually
Warm vs. cool color relationships, how to balance them and why
The beauty of analogous color schemes, creating subtle color palettes
with depth and definition.
How to create modern color palettes, and what modern artists practice
often but never say.
This workshop will provide students with a fun and fascinating introduction to the basic concepts of a range of theories regarding the use of color. Many have thought color selection is intuitive and unable to be learned. Yet, by combining simple concepts, a smidge of history and a little fun with colored pencils everyone can understand and apply both historical and modern color palettes and concepts in their crafting projects.
Please bring a set of colored pencils or pastels and gridded paper as well as a pen/pencil for notes!
