Composing with Color

July 28th - July 30th
Michelle Hinebrook |

This class will help you use color with purpose in planning harmonious and expressive color palettes. We will explore the dimensions of color - hue, value, and saturation - in a series of hands-on exercises in color design. These exercises will cover using Color Harmonies, Color Contrasts, Values, Saturation, Textures, and Transparent and Opaque glass. Students will have an opportunity to experiment and apply these color concepts in stained glass. There will be an introductory stained glass demonstration to cover the basics of how to cut and shape glass, copper foil and solder their chosen color combinations into small stained glass studies exploring how light interacts with glass, considering how context and environment influence the work. We will also discuss color psychology and using color to express and elicit emotional responses. Using perceptual techniques to identify color palettes and value ranges, we will develop a greater sensitivity to color.

1. Stained glass
2. Basic stained glass tools and materials
