We will begin the COLOR section with reading and discussing the following:

Joseph Albers Interaction of Color discussion –   josefalbersinteractionofcolor

David Batchelors Chromophobia, Chapter 2 – chromophobia


Instructions for 2.1 A – Color Relativity:

  1. Choose colors from paint samples and cut them into two small squares of 1”x1”.
  2. Find two different colors for the background. Cut them into 3”x3”.
  3. You will cut many combinations, arranging and re-arranging to find a successful representation of color relativity
  4. Pasts your 1”x1” squares in the center of each 3”x3” squares to show how the surrounding color is effecting/changing the color in the center. You must make sure that the paper is cut perfectly and pasted neatly. Before gluing these pieces, please assure that you have selected your best example. Remember:  The middle color, even though it is the same on two different backgrounds, will appear different when seen against different back ground.
  5. Please repeat these instructions times to show change in value, change in saturation and change in hue.


Due: End of class Thurs. Sept 28th
