Introduction to Color Theory: Online


In the mid- 20th century, two influential artists, Joseph Albers and
Johannes Itten, independently developed courses for teaching color
theory. Eventually, they went on to publish books on the subject that
continue to profoundly influence artists and art students today. Their
teachings are practical guidance to seeing and understanding visual
effects. In his *book “The Interaction of Color” Albers
wrote “In visual perception a color is almost never seen as it really
is – as it physically is. This fact makes color the most relative medium
in art.” In his *book "The Elements of Color",
Itten introduces 7 possible color contrasts: "each is unique in
character and artistic value, in visual, expressive, and symbolic
effect; and together they constitute the fundamental resource of color

*It is not necessary to purchase the books used in this workshop. Instructional PDFs including images will be provided.
