Josef Albers’ Color Theory


Fritz Horstman led a color theory workshop demonstrating Josef Albers' technique.  Josef Albers' color course was legendary. The Bauhaus master, who also was director of Black Mountain College and head of the Yale School of Art, taught generations of students to see color in new and unexpected ways. Over a lifetime of teaching he created a series of exercises that opened up the subject of color. In this two hour workshop the residents explored two or three of these exercises.
