Interaction of Colour (Easter Course)

  • 15 hours
  • 3 days


This practical three-day course will help you build confidence seeing and using colour in your creative work.

Inspired by Josef Albers’ Interaction of Colour, this course will provide you with the foundation to understand colour relationships and behaviour in painting, art and design.

You'll examine Albers’ prints first hand and create your own colour studies based on these prints. Demonstrations and group discussion will help you deepen your understanding of colour.

The course runs from 10am to 4pm over three days.

This course is run by the Slade School of Fine Art at UCL.
