Project description:“One Hue, Many Colors”

Using the textbook Color, A Love Story as a color companion, this workshop is an introduction to understanding and using color. The first few chapters of the book cover concepts like: the properties of color; how to mix colors; how to apply the paint; how to develop a design. Through discussions, demonstrations and hands-on exercises, participants will learn about and utilize a “process.” Using elements painted by the participants, they will be guided in designing and creating a finished collage that utilizes these concepts and explores the possibilities of a simple color scheme (even monochromatic). Guided critiques will occur during the work session to give participants opportunity to give each other feedback.

Medium: Acrylic paint on canvas paper

You must register and a materials list will be provided.

Bio:Deborah Cherry Mosch is an artist and an educator living in Savannah, Georgia, where she has taught at the Savannah College of Art and Design for more than twenty-five years. When she isn’t teaching she is creating and studying all things color and design. Having been a painter most of her life, she started designing jewelry as a natural extension of her most recent abstract paintings which are based upon her “to-do lists.” Her materials for the jewelry allow texture for added depth and movement, and vary in nature; she typically uses utilitarian materials, vintage beads, and semi-precious stones together to create each unique design. More recently she started creating her drawings digitally, allowing her to make immediate transformations in design and color. The formal elements of the work rely upon color to create atmosphere, economy and rhythm of design.
