first block - general color course
In the first block we studied color relationships. In the first week, working outside, we first listened to the world around us. Then we did gatherings of color. In the second week we explored color mixing and layering, seeing how the different colors arise through overlapping. We built a color wheel that progressed from the clear colors outside to the tertiary colors on the inside of the wheel. In the third week we worked with Goethe's color wheel, learning the lawfulness of color arising out of dark and light. In the fourth week each student chose a pair of colors to explore, and began to learn the technique of layered watercolor.
