  • $100.00


Color Theory for Fabric with Suzanne Patton (All Levels)

4 Weekly Sessions: Friday, October 9, 16, 23 & 30

This Class will meet Via Zoom from 1:30 - 3:00 pm

Color is one of the design principals which is essential for every artist. All of us use color but may not really know the theory behind it. Color is used in many different ways. All successful applications have theory behind it. This class is designed for the beginning artist and the crafter who wants to take their craft to an art.

My background is in art education. My personal interests are in Fiber Arts, and Painting. Color is integral to both of these disciplines. You might know me as the instructor for the Weaving Program at the Visual Art Center. This class came about because my weaving students were asking about how to use colors in their weaving. It occurred to me that many of you may not have a background in color theory. Hopefully this class will help beginning artists regardless of the medium. We are not going to use paint or think about color in painting. We are going to use colored paper, yarn, beads and fabric. There will be many hands-on activities and discussions during the zoom meeting instructions. We will be discussing all aspects of color, what is the theory of color, and how can we make color work for all levels of artists.

I have designed this class to be 4 sessions. We will be building and experimenting with colors in all of the different medias. You will have samples and tools to work with color on your own. Remember, we all struggle with color and we all use tools to remember how color works around other colors. Come join the class and lets get started.

Classes are via Zoom and a link will be sent out 24 hours prior to class start. You need a computer with a camera and microphone, iPad or smart phone to connect.
