About the Event
Saturday, September 30th
10AM - 1PM
Journey into color mastery by creating illusions and tricking the eye. Color is one of the most exciting things about art and quilting, and yet it’s easy to feel unsure about our choices. By understanding how we see color and then creating illusions with color, students can develop color confidence and giddy enjoyment.
In this class, learn to define and use basic color theory terminology; apply the principles of additive and subtractive color as they relate to vision, light, and the physical world; create mutable color illusions; create a color palette with afterimage effects; and create transparency illusions including a complex transparency illusion with more than two overlapping shapes and textures.
Students will learn to create three different categories of color effects: mutable color, transparency, and afterimage effect. This three-hour class is a no-sew class with instructive lecture, discussion, and ample time for practice and personal attention.
Skill level: 🎨
This is a color class. No sewing required! No color theory required!
We will send you the supply list with your class confirmation.
