Short description of the workshop:

Colour theory is an essential part of art education. This workshop will try to teach the students the basic principles of colour by using the colour theories of Johannes Itten, one of the important instructors of Bauhaus. An introduction to main features such as intermediate and contrasting colours will be followed by a close observation of the contrast values of colours, the usage, intensity and saturation of colours with different colours. The aim of this course is to learn the basic principles of colours, to create a colour circle and from there on to move on to applied practices. The workshop was held in March 2019.
